Jason Plummer

Jason Plummer (swimming) won gold in the men’s 1500m freestyle at the Edinburgh 1986 Commonwealth Games. Plummer, who trained out of the St. Peters Swim Club in Brisbane, won silver in the men’s 400, 800 and 1500 free at the 1985 Australian National Championships behind fellow Queenslander Michael McKenzie. He then went on to upstage his fellow Queenslander and now Commonwealth Games teammate McKenzie to win gold in the 1500m freestyle final in Edinburgh. Plummer represented Australia at the 1988 Olympic Games in Seoul when he was just 19, finishing 14th individually in the men’s 1500 freestyle while also swimming the third leg on the Aussie’s fourth-place-finishing 4×200 free relay. His swimming talents saw Plummer move to the United States and attend Stanford University in 1989, becoming an All-American swimmer. Plummer remained living in the United States following his studies until sadly passing away in November 2021, at the age of 52.
