It seems more honours are coming the way of Australia's greatest Olympian.
Wollongong's golden girl of the pool Emma McKeon has already been handed the keys to the city after her exploits at the 2016 Rio Olympics.
But Wollongong Lord Mayor Gordon Bradbery is planning a Mayoral Minute to honour the 27-year-old swim sensation for putting "Wollongong on the international map" following her impressive performances at the Tokyo Olympics.
Naming a future pool or swim centre after McKeon are some of the options being considered.
It comes after McKeon officially became Australia's greatest Olympian.
She is also only the second female in Olympics' history to win seven medals at the one Games, which is the most by an Australian of all-time.
McKeon picked up her 10th medal when she won the 50m freestyle in an Olympic Record time of 23.81 seconds.
In doing so she became Australia's most decorated swimmer, passing the nine medals won by Australian Olympic greats Ian Thorpe and Leisel Jones.
McKeon also became the first woman to secure the 50m-100m double since Jodie Henry achieved the feat in 2004.
Her 11th and seventh at Tokyo was also McKeon's fourth gold, which is the most by an Australian at a single Olympics.
Including her win at Rio, McKeon has won five gold medals over two Olympic Games, the equal most by an Australian all-time.
After her last race on Sunday where McKeon helped the Women's 4X100m Medley win a Gold medal, she was asked by Channel 7 how it felt to be compared to greats such as Thorpe and Jones.
"Surreal. It is so surreal," she said.
"I've been keeping my emotions at a certain level because I knew I had so many more races to go but it is so surreal to be in that kind of company.
I wanted to come here and win. And, that's what [coach Michael Bohl] and I have worked so hard for and what we had our eyes on.Emma McKeon
"I don't usually say things like this but I came here, I wanted gold. I wanted to come here and win. And, that's what [coach Michael Bohl] and I have worked so hard for and what we had our eyes on.
"I'm so glad to be finished and I've got four of them [gold medals]."
The Wollongong star, who closed out a near flawless campaign in Tokyo with a pair of gold medals on the final day of the meet, added she felt she deserved all the success that came her way.
"I definitely feel like I deserve it and I feel like my team deserve it," she said.
"The 50m is not one of my main events and I didn't put as much emotional energy to it because I care more about things like the 100m, but being on the last night I thought I owed that to Bohli because of all the work he has put in.
"He wanted me to really care for it and really go after it, and that's what I did.
"In both my races today I was ready, just because of all the hard work he has put in and I wanted to win."
Back home in Wollongong her family and friends were busy celebrating McKeon's breakout Olympics.
Elsewhere local and state politicians alike were lauding her exploits and thinking of ways to permanently acknowledge Australia's most decorated Olympian.
Member for Keira Ryan Park said McKeon had "given our region the boost it needs right now".
"Emma did more than just become and Olympic champion and set a new Olympic record," Mr Park said.
"As our community struggles with the ongoing impact of COVID she has allowed all of us for 51.96 secs to think of nothing else other than cheering her on.
"Her victory is a testament to years of hard work and sacrifice.
"When we are out of this lockdown let's give Emma the homecoming parade she deserves."
Given McKeon already has the keys to the city, Wollongong Lord Mayor Gordon Bradbery is encouraging community input to decide how best to recognise her "brilliant achievements".
"Maybe a park, future swimming or aquatic centre can be named after her to mark Emma's incredible achievements," Cr Bradbery said.
"Even though we've already presented the keys to the city to Emma, she wasn't present when they were presented so maybe we can have another civic reception.
"Her achievements are a great boost for this community and Emma has certainly put Wollongong on the map....our city now is more specifically known as a city that breeds champions.
