Josh Edwards-Smith

Josh Edwards-Smith (swimming) added the 200m backstroke Australian title to his resumé in 2022, taking down Mitch Larkin in the process and booking his spot for his first Commonwealth Games in Birmingham. Edwards-Smith started at the UWA-West Coast club when he was 9, breaking multiple state records and dominating the age group in Western Australia. He claimed his first national junior title at 12 (100m backstroke) and has broken age records on his path to selection in Australian junior teams in 2018 and 2019. He was named Swimming WA’s Age Swimmer of the Year in 2020. He has since moved to the Gold Coast and trains under Michael Bohl. Edwards-Smith announced himself as part of the next generation of Australian swimmers at the 2021 Queensland championships by breaking the Australian 18 years age record for the 200m backstroke previously held by Larkin.
