Silver Medalist RIO Olympics

Fina Male Swimmer of the Year 

Mitchell Larkin has been a proud member of the AUS Dolphins swim team since 2011 World Championships, earning him a swimmers number of 711. Born in 1993 on the sunshine coast, with the beach near by and a creek in his backyard he grew up having a strong attraction for water. He first dreamed of becoming an Olympian whilst watching the 2000 Sydney Olympics. In 2012 he achieved this dream where he also made an impression on the world stage finishing 8th in the final of the 200m Backstroke. This will always remain a massive highlight of Mitch's career and a moment he'll never forget. In 2014, Mitch won a Gold at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, in the 200m Backstroke and further added three silvers to his collection in the 100m, 50m and 4x 100m Medley Relay. In 2014 Mitch continued his successful steak in the pool, winning both the 100m and 200m Backstroke World Championship crown, breaking both Australian and Commonwealth records. More recently, Mitch validated his World Champion status by securing two gold medals at the 2015 Kazan World Championships in the 100m and 200m Backstroke and a Silver Medal in the 200m Backstroke at 2016 RIO Olympics. Out of the pool, Mitch is studying a Bachelor of Engineering degree, a career that he wishes to pursue post his athletic career.
