Achievements

Since first taking to a pool at the age of four, Timothy 'Disko' Disken has gone on to represent his country numerous times on the international stage. With his trademark headphones pumping out ‘Avicii’ tunes, Disken made his first Dolphins appearance at the 2014 para pan pacs in the United States. In his debut outing, the Victorian claimed a gold and bronze medal. Two years later he travelled to Rio and competed at the Paralympics, where he nabbed a trifecta of medals – a gold, silver and bronze for freestyle and individual medley events. In front of a home crowd he most recently snared two more gold at the 2018 Pan Pacific Para Championships in Cairns. Disken will line up on the blocks for his second Paralympic Games in Tokyo.
