Brendon Smith (swimming) made his Commonwealth Games debut in Birmingham where he won silver in the 400m individual medley and also made the final of the 200m individual medley and 200m butterfly.
Smith’s first international success was a silver medal in the 400m freestyle at the 2018 Junior Pan Pacs in Fiji. He pushed Mitch Larkin all the way in the 400m individual medley at the 2019 Australian championships before winning the event at the next championships in 2021 and qualifying for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. He broke the Australian and Commonwealth record in the heats in Tokyo, before taking the bronze, just the second Australian to win a medal in the event after Robert Woodhouse at the Los Angeles 1984 Games.
Brendon comes from a family of dedicated Nunawading swimmers in Melbourne. His father Peter is a former club captain, his mother Annisa is an active member of the swim committee, while sisters Mikayla and Reidel have also competed at national championships. When former coach Wayne Lawes retired, Smith made the move to the Gold Coast to train with Michael Bohl.
Smith is studying a Bachelor of Business at La Trobe University in Melbourne.
