Aaron Younger

Giving up swimming for water polo when he was 10, Aaron 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 Team to compete at the London Games where he was the youngest member of the team. After losing three of their first four matches, the Australians knocked off Greece 13-8 to book a spot in the quarter-finals against Serbia. The Aussies took a 7-4 halftime lead before going down 8-11 to the eventual bronze medallists.
