Additional information

SWITCH
Considered himself a backstroker early in his career, but found his niche in one of the sport's most gruelling events - 400m individual medley. "It's a tough event to train for and race. I had my heart set on backstroke, but 400m ended up being my calling." (sbs.com.au, 6 Jul 2016)


MOVE TO ADELAIDE
Following 10 years at Nunawading Swimming Club, Victoria, moved to Marion Swimming Club, South Australia, after his long-time coach, Rohan TAYLOR, stepped down. "I worked with him for eight years. He's pretty much family to me and I owe a lot of my success to him." MAHONEY tried a few different coaches and went with Peter BISHOP (AUS), who has been coaching 100m freestyle Olympic champion, Kyle CHALMERS (AUS). (funkytrunks.com, 24 Jan 2017; Athlete, Oct 2017)
