Brent is one of only three Canadians to swim the 100m Freestyle in under 50 seconds and establish the national mark at 49.53.
Brent was one of a few athletes selected by Visa Canada to have Bruny Surin as mentor throughout his Olympic Year.
No one can question Brent's dedication to the sport. His hometown is in Mission, B.C., and he started his swimming career training at the Spartans Club in Chilliwack, B.C. That meant Brent's parents, Chuck and Marilyn, needed to get up at 3:45 am to drive to Chilliwack in order to arrive on time for a 4:45 am practice. When Brent moved to Vancouver, his dad drove two hours every morning to watch him practice.
On race day, Brent will often listen to classical music to stay relaxed but will crank up some heavy metal just prior to the race to energize himself.
Aside from swimming, Brent states that he is an average guy, even though he holds a black belt in Isshin Ryu karate.
