Jaimi Kenny, the daughter of Queensland sports giants Grant Kenny and Lisa Curry, has died.
Mr Kenny released a statement today, saying the 33-year-old Jaimi had "lost her battle with a long-term illness and passed away peacefully in hospital this morning in the company of loving family" at Sunshine Coast University Hospital.
"Jaimi will forever be remembered as a caring, bright and loving soul who always put others before herself," Mr Kenny wrote.
"Our hearts are broken and the pain is immense but we must move forward cherishing every wonderful moment we got to share with our treasured first child.
"We thank the incredible team at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital for their tireless commitment to making her better and giving us as the extra time we were able to spend with her."
Mr Kenny did not go into any further details.
"It goes without saying that this is a very difficult time for family and friends and we trust we will all be allowed to grieve in privacy," he said.
Mr Kenny, a Australian former Ironman and surf lifesaver, and international swimmer Ms Curry, were married from 1996 until 2017.
