Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Marcus William "Mark" Stockwell (born 5 July 1963) is a former Australian sprint freestyle swimmer. Stockwell won three medals in freestyle swimming at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics. Stockwell claimed a silver medal in the 100-metre freestyle behind American swimmer Rowdy Gaines after a controversial incident involving the starter. Gaines' coach, Richard Quick, was aware of starter Frank Silvestri's tendency to pull the trigger immediately as the swimmers mounted the blocks. Gaines managed to gain around a metre's start on the remainder of the unaware field, and this was enough, as he held Stockwell off to claim the gold by 0.44 of a second. Stockwell and the Australian Olympic Federation lodged an official protest, but to no avail.show more
