About Isaac

Isaac Cooper began his journey in swimming at the Fairymead Swimming Club, under coaches Paul Simms and Scott Hamlet. Today, the 17-year-old trains out of the Rackley Swim Club in Brisbane. 

At the 2020 Queensland Short Course Championships, Isaac won his age category in the 50m backstroke in an impressive 24.37 seconds. Not only was this Isaacs PB time in the 50m backstroke, but also set a new Queensland Age Record, Queensland All Comers Record and Australian Age Record.

At the 2021 UniSport National Swimming Championships, Isaac won the 50m men's backstroke posting a time of 24.69. His time is the third fastest all-time Australian 50m men's backstroke, sitting just behind national record holder Ben Treffers and Mitch Larkin.
