Darren's Story


Few Australians can claim what Darren Clark achieved on the Olympic stage. The Australian 400m specialist finished just off the podium on three occasions- finishing fourth in the 400m and 4x400m at the Los Angeles 1984 Games, and fourth in the 400m final at the Seoul Olympics in 1988. Clark still holds the 400m national record with a time of 44.38 set in the Seoul semi-final.

Clark also holds the national 4x400m record with his Los Angeles teammates Bruce Frayne, Gary Minihan and Rick Mitchell. The quartet set a time of 2:59.70 in the Olympic final- a time even the Australian silver medal winning team from the Athens Olympic Games in 2004 could not beat, clocking 3:00.60.
