Joseph Schooling’s story is one of inspiration. He started competing at the tender age of six, breaking records and clocking times that made everyone take notice.

He left Singapore to train in the USA at 14 years old and made his Olympic debut at the London Olympic Games in 2012 as the youngest member of Singapore’s contingent. He returned to the Olympic stage in 2016 and created history by winning Singapore’s first Olympic swimming gold, first Olympic gold of any kind, in the 100m Butterfly.

Since graduating from college in 2018, Joseph has returned to Singapore to continue his training and to pursue his career as a professional swimmer. He also started Swim Schooling – a swimming academy for all ages. Swimming is a big part of his life and he hopes to share his passion with the world and inspire many more children to learn this life-saving skill.
