Pool-Naming Drama Stems From Mack Horton's 2019 Podium Protest
SWIMSWAM
Feb. 26, 2020— The 2019 FINA Aquatic World Championships saw its first medal ceremony filled with drama, as the men’s 400m freestyle silver medalist, Australia’s  Mack Horton , protested gold medalist Sun Yang ‘s presence by abstaining from podium celebrations, standing behind the platform on the floor during the Chinese national anthem. Horton’s behavior is having ripple effects more than 6 months later, as his childhood school of Caulfield Grammar is reportedly shying away from naming its new state-of-the-art aquatic center after its first Olympic champion constituent.
