Brendon Smith is a competitive swimmer who represents his native country, Australia, internationally. He is a 2020 Olympian in both the 400 and 200 IM. At the Tokyo Olympics 2021, he won his first-ever Olympic medal with a bronze and marked Australia’s first medal for Tokyo Olympics 2021.

Net Worth, Salary, and Income
Smith started swimming at a very young age and competed for Australia at the Junior and Senior level as just a teenager. He first represented his country at the Junior Pan Pacific Championships in Fiji, where he won a silver in the 400m freestyle and a bronze in the 4*200m free relay.
In 2019, Smith placed 8th in the 400 IM at Universiade (World University Games). The same year, he also competed in the 400 IM and 400 free at US Summer nationals. After competing at the Australian Swimming Trials, he was named in his very first senior Dolphins team in 2021.
At his debut performance in Tokyo, Smith broke the Commonwealth Record in the heats (4:09.27) and took home the bronze medal in the final. His accomplishment marked Australia’s first medal for Tokyo Olympics 2021.
The average Olympic swimmer makes less than 1% of what a professional football or basketball player makes. Swimming Australia (SA) provides bonuses worth tens of thousands of dollars to those who win Olympic medals. The Olympic swimmers also benefit from a variety of government grants, incentives, and endorsement deals.
No doubt, Smith has also earned tens of thousands of dollars from his impressive swimming career. As of 2021, his net worth is estimated at $50 thousand.
