From an early age Jake had shown a gifted talent across many sports, his natural ability coupled with a thirst for perfection and a drive to train harder and smarter was ultimately what pushed him into making a commitment to the sport of swimming.
Jake made his Olympic debut at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Games where he took home bronze in the 4 x 100m Medley Relay as the Breaststroke specialist.
Securing an Olympic medal was the result of dedication and perseverance within the sport. After failing to qualify for the 2012 Australian Olympic team, Jake made the brave decision to move from his hometown to pursue his dreams under the guidance of a new coach.
Jake is currently studying at the University of the Sunshine Coast where he still trains with the same coach.
2018 will see Jake compete at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games in both the individual Breaststroke events and the Medley Relay.
