Heralded as New Zealand's best chance of a swimming medal since Danyon Loader's double gold at Atlanta 1996, Clareburt burst onto the international scene with a 400m medley bronze at the 2018 Gold Commonwealth Games as a teenager.

He followed that performance with another bronze at the world championships the following year and currently has the fifth-fastest time in the world over 400m this year, 19th over 200m.
