Achievements

After making the switch from cross country to swimming four years ago, Alexander Tuckfield has never looked back. Coming through the para pathway program and being selected in the Para Development Squad has seen Tuckfield harness his talent in the pool and achieve his goal of making the Paralympics. Qualifying in the Men's 400m Freestyle (S9), Tuckfield will line up on the blocks against the reigning Paralympic champion, fellow Dolphin and teammate, Brenden Hall. A self-confessed Tool fan, Tuckfield loves music and it motivates him to push through every training session and race.
