Training with Dean Boxall at St Western in Brisbane, Clyde Lewis bounced onto the international swimming scene at the 2015 World Junior Championships in Singapore when he won gold in the Men’s 200m Individual Medley. Later that year he picked up five gold medals, two silver and one bronze at the Youth Commonwealth Games in Samoa.

He made his Australian Dolphins debut at the 2016 World Short Course Championships in Windsor. In 2018, the 21-year-old helped the 4x200m men’s relay team to silver at the Pan Pacific Championships before securing a gold medal in the 400m individual medley and a bronze in the 200m event at the 2018 Commonwealth Games.

At the 2019 World Championships Clyde kicked it up a gear, pushing his competitors all the way in the 100m and 200m freestyle and swimming his career-best times. In the semi-finals of the 200m freestyle, Clyde clocked a time of 1:44.90, making him the second fastest Australian of all time and the fastest time of 2019 so far.
