Olympic History


Did you know?

  • Glen started swimming because he wanted to go fishing with his father when he was six but his parents told him he would have to learn how to swim first.
  • His younger brother Marc followed him into the water polo world and was in the British junior squad.
  • Away from the pool, he likes to relax by going clay pigeon shooting.

Glen's Career

After switching to water polo from swimming at the age of 13, Glen progressed through the British junior teams while playing domestically at Lancaster. He made his senior debut in 2008 and was part of the 2009 British team to finish fourth at the European B Championships in Lugano. Over the past three seasons, Glen has played professionally in Australia for Adelaide Jets, Rapid Bucharest in Romania and most recently for SV Wurzburg in Germany. He was a regular in the Brits' 2012 World League qualifiers this season and admits scoring twice in their home leg against Russia was one of his best international performances.
