Santiago 2023 Pan American Games 3

Stephen’s Bio

  • At the 2023 Pan American Games in Santiago, Chile, Calkins took home three bronze medals in the 4×100 freestyle, 4×100 medley and helped the 4×100 mixed freestyle relay secure a spot in the finals that would finish third.
  • In his only individual race at the 2023 Pan American Games, Calkins finished 13th in the 50-metre freestyle.
  • At the 2022 Commonwealth Games, Calkins swam in the preliminaries for the 4×100-m freestyle relay and mixed 4×100 freestyle relay that earned bronze in the finals. Individually, he placed 10th in the 100-m freestyle and 12th in the 50-m freestyle.

  • Stephen Calkins got the call to fill a spot on the 2022 Commonwealth Games team two days after deciding to retire from the sport of swimming. Calkins’s performances at the 2022 Bell Canadian Swimming Trials put him in a position to be considered to replace Yuri Kisil at the summer competition.
