Jarrod Poort

Athlete Biography

Jarrod Poort swam an 11 second personal best to win the 1500m at the Australian 2012 Olympic trials. His time of 15:13.38 was an agonising two seconds outside the automatic A-qualifier so it was not until three months later that he knew he would compete in London.

Competing at his first Olympic Games in London, Poort posted a time of 15:20.82 to finish seventh in his heat and miss the final.
