Australian Swimmer – Eamon Sullivan
Eamon Sullivan, who was born August 30, 1985 in Perth, is an Australian sprint swimmer.
Sullivan is recognized as one of Australia’s most exciting stars of the pool, seen by many as the swimmer that will help re-establish the men’s swim team as world leaders once again.
Sullivan became the fastest swimmer in history after he broke the world 50 m freestyle record at the 2008 NSW Open Championships at Sydney Olympic Park Aquatic Centre. He timed 21.56 to slash 0.08 off the 21.64 set by the Russian Alexander Popov at Moscow in June 2000. However, his time was beaten to 21.50 by French Alain Bernard on 23 March 2008.
The one-time World Record holder in both the 50m and 100m freestyle, Eamon is hot property and hungry to reclaim his status as the undisputed fastest man in the pool in the lead up to the 2012 London Olympics.
