Product Details

SUPER SPECIAL! CELEBRATE ONE OF AUSTRALIA'S FINEST MOMENTS IN OLYMPIC GAMES HISTORY!

At the time of the 1996 Olympics, Perkins was out of form and long-time Australian rival Daniel Kowalski was regarded as the favourite. He qualified for the final by a mere 0.24 seconds and it was later revealed that Perkins felt unwell and considered not swimming. From lane eight, Perkins dominated the race, making Olympics history. A legend.

By 1992 he had come to dominate the 1500 m event, demolishing a long-standing world record. He dominated the event at the Barcelona Olympic games, lowering the record to 14 minutes, 43 seconds – a massive improvement. He was also the world record holder in the 400 m freestyle.

At the 1994 Commonwealth Games Perkins broke the 400 m, 800 m, and 1500 m freestyle world records. The 800 m record was broken while swimming the 1500 m event. The 400 m record stood until it was broken by fellow Australian Ian Thorpe in 1999, and the 800 m and 1500 m records until 2001 when broken by Thorpe and Grant Hackett respectively. His performances in that year earned him the Male World Swimmer of the Year award from the Swimming World magazine.
