At just 20 years of age Clint achieved what most athletes strive for their entire life, an Olympic Gold Medal. Kayaking is Clint’s greatest love and can be seen by the incredible results he has achieved in winning the full set of Olympic Medals and a World Title, while representing Australia at 5 Olympic Games, which are complimented by a staggering 32 Australian Championship Gold medals.
Surf Lifesaving has provided Clint with many highlights throughout the years. In 1999, he eclipsed Ironman legend Trevor Hendy’s record and became the nation’s most successful Lifesaver. In 2008 he took his career tally to 36 National Gold medals. He has also been honoured with the captaincy of many Australian Surf Lifesaving Teams, which have contested and won the World Championships, Tri-Nations Series, and the Goodwill Games.
Clint was officially recognised for his sporting achievements and status as a champion Australian by being awarded an O.A.M.
