Achievements

Chalmers made his much-anticipated debut on the Australian swim team at the 2015 World Swimming Championships. At just 18 years of age, Adelaide-born Chalmers took out gold in the Men’s 100m Freestyle at the Rio Olympics, stunning the world and setting a new junior world record. He claimed two further medals in Rio – picking up two bronze in the 4x100m freestyle relay and the 4x100m medley relay. He was Oceania Male Swimmer of the Year in 2018 following his successful Pan Pacific Championship and Commonwealth Games campaigns.
