If you were a scientist, what would you invent?

I would like to discover a quantum theory of gravity which would then lead me to a reformulated standard theory of everything that will finally include all the forces - weak, strong, electromagnetic and gravity.

Cam, just wanted to say i love your personality and your simplicity. I like how passionate you are on the things you love. My brothers swim and you are a role model to them. So congrats

Thanks it's good to be passionate about something. If you go deep enough into something it will almost always end up being interesting!

How do you usually do chin-ups ? How many series ?

In full training I usually do 3-4 sets of 5 with around 30KG strapped to my waist and with my arms shoulder length apart

Your photos from your travels look amazing! Where was your favorite place? :)

Definitely Prague and Milan for sure! My plan next year is to go to Finland in winter and sleep in a glass igloo under the northern lights!

What would be better a Olympic gold in the 100m or the 200m FR ?

This is like asking what would be better - $20 million dollar scratchy ticket won or $20 million dollar lottery win!

Cool ill check the book out , my best friend is like Sheldon Copper of Physics she loves it at uni, i dont know mechanics put me off Physics but i still love maths , have you thought about what you want to do after uni ?

Who is she? And yeah mechanics is a little boring to me, but still really hard. It's relativity and quantum theory that are the things that will get anyone interested once they delve deep enough Into it. I want to go and do graduate work in America or even in Australia somewhere, where I can get my phd and also work under world leading physicists. After that who knows. Maybe research, there are plenty of areas available

Ahhh so why did you choose Physics if you didnt have a passion for it?

I didn't have a passion for the basic things we learnt but I was always looking up the concepts we never learnt like relativity and quantum theory etc and would read that stuff and be fascinated so I wanted to learn more of that. Also reading Richard Feynmans biography made me love physics even more because he was such a great human being as well as one of the greatest minds of all time

2 gym sessions Is not it enough for a swimmer on your level ?

I do 45-60 mins of core work Tuesday Thursday mornings before training also. But I guess the two normal gym sessions are working

What do you think of Chemistry ? since you love Physics so much

I liked chemistry a little in high school but I have never really drawn a passion from it, however, I have only learned high school chemistry. I didn't find a passion for physics in high school either because it was super basic stuff, but when I hit the interesting stuff at uni I started to love it. So who's to say it won't be the same for chemistry.

Hi Cam! I think you are a really awesome swimmer and you're a great role model! I would really like to meet you some time! Will you be at December States (QLD)? Cause I would love to meet you and what are you studying to be? Thanks :)

Thanks! And yeah I will be! Ill be doing close to a million events so ill be there all the time!
