Just four years after failing to make the finals at the trials for the London Olympics, Jake Packard’s Olympic dream had been realised.

Jake was reconsidering his future as a swimmer after failing to qualify for London, but redoubled his efforts under USC Spartans coach Chris Mooney. Their combined motivation towards getting Jake to Rio paid off.

The 195cm Noosa swimmer qualified for the 100m breaststroke in a time of 59.57 seconds at April 2016 Australian Swimming Championships in Adelaide.

Jake, who was born in Penrith, was well-supported by his family throughout his road to Rio.
