Athlete Biography

Mark Stockwell was Australia’s only triple medallist of the Los Angeles Games. An explosive freestyler, Stockwell swam an outstanding individual race in the men’s 100m as well as being a star on Australia’s two medal-winning relay teams. As a romantic aside, Stockwell has another reason for fondly remembering the 1984 Games: it was there he met his future wife, American swimming legend Tracy Caulkins, a triple gold medallist in LA. After watching her swim, Stockwell jumped into the warm-up pool and introduced himself to Caulkins. They were married seven years later.
