In April 2016, Atherton did not qualify for the 2016 Summer Olympics. Her best result at the Australian trials was a third-place finish in the 100-meter backstroke behind Emily Seebohm, who trains at the same club as Atherton, and Madison Wilson. Seebohm and Wilson were the gold and silver medalists in this event at the 2015 World Aquatics Championships.
