Radford is arguably one of the most exciting young swimmers to watch race in the sport of open water. He was selected for the Men’s 10k in the 2012 Olympics but did not meet the qualification standards of his federation to be sent to the Games. He is poised to make another run at the Olympics in Rio 2016. Radford has had success on the International circuit, being twice selected for the Jr. World Championships Team (2006, 2008) as well as competing in the Open Water World Championships on five occasions (2006, 2007, 2009, 2011, 2013). Radford is also well known for winning the star-studded Tiburon Mile event, where he first found victory in 2009, before becoming the back-to-back champion (2011, 2012) of the one mile swim.
