Queensland sporting greats Lisa Curry and Grant Kenny have issued a plea for privacy following the death of their daughter Jaimi Lee Kenny.
Jaimi, 33, passed away peacefully on Monday morning at Sunshine Coast University Hospital following a long battle with illness.
"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," the family said in a statement.
In an Instagram post, Ms Curry said her daughter's death didn't feel "right or real."
"I will miss you when the clouds are dark and stormy and when the rainbow appears. I will miss you when I close my eyes. I will miss you when I open my eyes," she wrote on Monday.
"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," Mr Curry said in a statement.
The Olympians thanked Sunshine Coast hospital staff for giving them extra time to spend with their daughter.
"Jaimi will forever be remembered as a caring, bright and loving soul who always put others before herself."
Known as Queensland's sporting royalty, the pair married in 1986 and had three children before divorcing in 2017.
