Athlete Biography

London Olympian Thomas Fraser-Holmes became the first swimmer to book a spot on the 2016 Australian Olympic Team, claiming his seventh straight national 400m individual medley title (4:11.09) on the first night of trials.

In a performance which brought down the house at the trials, Fraser-Holmes went on to secure a spot in the men’s 200m freestyle with a thrilling dead heat for gold with fellow Rio teammate Cam McEvoy in 1:45.63.

Four years ago in his Olympic debut, Fraser-Holmes finished seventh in the finals of both the 400m individual medley and 200m freestyle. He was also fifth as a part of the Australian 4 x 200m freestyle team that missed out on the medal dais by 0.7secs.

Fraser-Holmes, born in Newcastle, claimed the 200m freestyle at the 2014 Commonwealth Games and at the Pan Pac Championships on the Gold Coast.

With three tattoos - the Commonwealth Games symbol, kangaroo and star – the Miami Swimming Club athlete will be aiming to make a splash in Brazil.
