Aaron Younger will make his second Olympic appearance at Rio, as one of seven returning Olympians.
After giving up swimming for water polo when he was 10, Younger made his international debut as a 17-year-old in 2009 and was a part of the successful 2009 Australian University Team that won gold at the World University Games.
He went on to gain selection for the Australian Olympic Team to compete at the 2012 Games where he was the youngest member of the team, eventually finishing in seventh place.
Perth born Younger has played overseas for five consecutive seasons and donned the green and gold cap at three separate World Championships.
Out of the water, Younger studies a Bachelor of Commerce, Accounting and Finance at Curtin University.
