The sister of Aussie swimming superstar Kaylee McKeown has shared a sweet video of her sibling’s dog ‘running riot’ as her owner snared multiple gold medals at the Tokyo Olympics

Queenslander McKeown, 20, won gold in both her 100m and 200m backstroke finals as well as the 4x100m medley relay in the pool in Japan

And her black dachshund named Ottis was loving all the attention back home in a converted cheer room on the Sunshine Coast.

In the clip dubbed ‘Naughty boy’ and shared by Taylor McKeown, the excited pooch can be seen running around with a toy kangaroo in his mouth among a sea of people.

McKeown became an instant fan favourite in Tokyo after a heartwarming display of sportsmanship seconds after winning the final of the women’s 200m backstroke.

She insisted fellow Australian swimmer Emily Seebohm, 29, join her on the dais after the veteran finished third in the same final.     

After the race, Taylor McKeown shared a throwback picture of the pair to Instagram, with Kaylee at the time years away from her first gold – but ever inspired by Seebohm.

‘How one icon inspired another. This is where it started VS where it’s at,’ she said after sharing a photo of the pair with their medals.

‘A truly inspirational duo for the world to see.’

After their 200m backstroke final, Australia watched on with pride as Seebohm placed McKeown’s gold medal around her neck.

‘Em has been around for so long and I speak so highly of her and for a reason. It made sense for her to be up there with me,’ McKeown told Channel 7.

‘I had a tear in my eye.’

Seebohm, competing at her fourth Olympics, was overcome with emotion after winning bronze. 

‘I never thought this was going to happen again,’ she told Channel 7 in between tears.

‘I’m so proud, the team has done so well, it’s been an absolute dream to be on this team. It’s been the favourite thing of my entire career being on this team.

‘I feel like a bit of a fine wine at the moment – it gets better as it ages.’  

McKeown was the first Australian woman to win gold in the 200m backstroke in Olympic history.

She also sports a tattoo on her foot to remember her father Sholto, who died in August last year following a two-year battle with brain cancer.
