Mackenzie “Mack” Horton has cemented himself as one Australia’s most recognisable and successful middle-distance swimmers ever. Having already adding several championship and world records to his resume, he continues to assert his dominance in the pool.

Being raised and born in Melbourne, Mack began competitive swimming at 10 years old braking his first Australian-age record at 13. He continued to dominate and break records in each subsequent year. He began his international career in 2012 where he won the 1500m freestyle at the Pan Pacific Swimming Championships. That same year, Horton also claimed the 1500m freestyle gold at the 2012 FINA Swimming World Cup.

However, it was Horton’s 2013 performance at the World Junior Championships in Dubai that brought him to the attention of the world. Horton dominated Dubai, taking out gold in the 200m, 400m, 800m and 1500m freestyle as well as gold in the 4x100m freestyle. His first senior team appearance saw him receive a silver medal in the 1500m freestyle as well as gold as a part of the 4x200m freestyle during the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

Mack brought his stellar form into the 2016 Rio Olympics winning gold in the 400m at age 20. Horton has continued to excel in his 2017 season, dominating the National Championships with gold in the 1500m, 400m and 200m freestyle.
