Srihari Natraj is an Indian professional swimmer. He is the youngest Indian male swimmer to qualify for FINA ‘A’ standard of international swimming in the men’s 100m backstrokes and to earn a direct entry for the Tokyo Olympics 2020. Nataraj’s efforts gave a new identity to the Indian swimming fraternity in the international arena.

Srihari Nataraj began his swimming practises at the age of 2. He was trying out every possible sport available to him at this early age but was more inclined towards cricket. Srihari in an interview said, “I used to bowl fast and leg spin. I used to play basketball, tennis and football too.”

But his love for the blue waters virtually began while he used to watch his elder brother practising in the pool. Srihari first participated in a swimming competition when he was 5. Subsequently, Srihari Nataraj marked his international debut in 2015 at the Asian Age Group Swimming Championships where he ended up with the 8th position in 200m Medley, 6th in 100m Backstroke, and 200m in Backstroke. Since then Natraj has never looked back.

These are the boys’ 50-metre backstroke, boys’ 100-metre backstroke and boys’ 200-metre backstroke events.

All these impressive performances set his course for greatness in Indian swimming, it was the South Asian Games that made Natraj a poster boy of Indian swimming in the following years. Natraj won gold medals in 50 m backstroke, 100 m backstroke, 200 m backstroke and the 4×400 m medley relay. These impressive performances earned him the ‘A’ standard qualification by FINA.
