Biography

American-Australian competition swimmer, also known by her married name Tracy Stockwell, she is a three-time Olympic gold medalist, five-time world champion, and former world record-holder in three events.

Caulkins was noted for her versatility and ability in all four major competitive swimming strokes: the butterfly, breaststroke, backstroke and freestyle. Caulkins won forty-eight national championships and set American records in all four strokes over a range of distances as well as in the individual medley (IM) events, which combine all four strokes over the course of a single race. Her versatility brought Caulkins many titles and awards, and as a result she is considered one of the greatest swimmers of all time. By the time she retired from competitive swimming in 1984, Caulkins had set five world records and sixty-three American records (more than any other American swimmer, male or female).

On the first day of the 1984 Olympics she won Gold for the 400-m individual medley relay for women with a record time of 4 min 19.24 sec, three seconds off the world record.

Hurt by the boycott of 1980, she won Gold medals at world championships, at Pan-Am games and at every national meet she entered.

She married Mark Stockwell, an Olympic Swimming Medallist from Australia and a fellow University of Florida alumnus, and has lived in Australia since shortly after graduating from the University of Florida in 1985. They live in Queensland, Australia with their five children.

Caulkins is now an American-Australian dual citizen. In 2008, she was recognized, under her married name, Tracy Anne Stockwell, "For service to sport as an administrator and proponent of sporting opportunities for women" with the Medal of the Order of Australia by the Australian government.
