R. CochraneSince making his senior international debut in 2006, Ryan Cochrane has become one of Canada’s most decorated swimmers ever. At Beijing 2008 he briefly held the Olympic record in the 1500m freestyle before going on to win bronze. He added a silver medal in that same event at London 2012 where he missed the 400m freestyle final by just one-hundredth (0.01) of a second. Cochrane’s six medals at the FINA World Championships are the most ever by a Canadian swimmer. He is also just the second person (after Australian legend Grant Hackett) to reach the podium in the 800m and 1500m freestyle events at three straight worlds, winning a total of four silver and two bronze. Cochrane capped his Commonwealth Games career in 2014 by successfully defending his 400m and 1500m freestyle titles. He is a six-time medallist at the Pan Pacific Championships, including three gold. For all of his accomplishments, Cochrane was named Canadian Male Swimmer of the Year seven straight times from 2008 to 2014.
