KLIM Michael (1977) Australia / Swimming
Although he was born in Poland, it was in the colours of Australia that this young swimmer distinguished himself at the Atlanta Games, coming third in the 4x400m medley relay. But it was in the waters of the Aquatic Center in Sydney that Klim created a sensation.The world champion and record-holding butterfly specialist beat the record in the 100 metres freestyle in the 4x100m relay to help Australia win the event. He subsequently won another gold medal in the 4x200m freestyle and a silver in the 4x100m medley. That was a consolation after failing to win the 100 metres butterfly, coming second to Frolander of Sweden.
