Our Aussie Olympic Champion: Mack Horton

Tuesday, August 09, 2016

Mack Horton is an Australian Olympics Swimmer who achieved the first gold medal in the 2016 Rio Olympics! 

AND ITS HIS OLYMPIC DEBUT! 

At just 20 years old he has overcome obstacles such as poor eyesight requiring contact lenses to compete, a fear of water, rolling his Landrover (in MAY) and also completing an Economics Degree, to WIN the 2016 Rio Olympics Gold Medal for 400m Freestyle! 

Mack was born and raised in Victoria and as an AFL Supporter, he backs the Melbourne Demons! 

Recent Swimming Career: 
    • 1st (400m freestyle) – 2016 Australian Swimming Championships (Adelaide, Australia)
    • 2nd (400m freestyle) – 2016 NSW Open Championships (Sydney, Australia)
    • 11th (400m freestyle) – 2015 World Championships (Kazan, Russia)
    • 4th (400m freestyle) – 2014 Commonwealth Games (Glasgow, Scotland)
    • 2nd (1500m freestyle) – 2014 Commonwealth Games (Glasgow, Scotland)

His Olympics isn't over yet, still to compete in the 1500m Freestyle on 13th August, we are all behind him to bring home another GOLD! 

We can't wait to see what he will bring to Australian Swimming next!
