PORT Fairy’s famous East Beach was part of Australian swimmer Mack Horton’s path to Olympic glory.

Horton won an Olympic gold medal on day one of the games in Rio.

He won Australia’s first gold medal for the games when he triumphed in the men’s 400 metres freestyle final.

Part of Horton’s preparation for the Olympics was competing in the Port Fairy leg of theShipwreck Coast Swim Seriesin January.

Horton covered the1.2-kilometre course in 14 minutes and 53 seconds to win the ocean swim comfortably.

Organisers didn’t know Horton was going to compete at Port Fairy with the new Olympic champion turning up on the morning of the swim.

Port Fairy Surf Life Saving Club ocean swim organiser Paul Buchanan said the club was thrilled to hear of Horton’s success.

“It’s absolutely unreal,” Buchanan said.

“We’re stoked to have an Olympic gold medalist having done our swim.

“He certainly left his mark on the day, everyone was in awe of how good he was.

“He was amazing, he streeted the field and won by more than 100 metres.

“We will invite him to come back next year.”

Horton, 20, can add his Olympic gold to thesilver medal he won in the1500 metre freestylefinal at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow in 2014.
