Santo Condorelli plays by his own rules — and that includes stopping a race if he doesn’t feel like finishing it.

During the Pro Swim Series stop in Westmont on Thursday morning, the Canadian-Italian-American swimmer led his morning heat of the 100-meter butterfly with a 24.03. The recently unsuspended 28-year-old Olympic silver medalist paused for a moment at the wall, took a few more strokes, and decided to call it quits.

Condorelli’s 50 split won’t count as an official time because he didn’t finish the race legally, according to USA Swimming’s rule 102.23(d), but he said he didn’t care because the time wasn’t worth recording.

“It was absolute sh*t from the start so I bounced,” said Condorelli, whose best 50 fly time is a 23.30 from 2015.

One of the most interesting men in swimming continues to keep us on our toes. After getting his 18-month suspension lifted, Condorelli joined Texas Ford Aquatics under former Alabama head coach Coley Stickels, reportedly training to vie for a spot on the 2024 U.S. Olympic team.

Condorelli was born in Japan and raised in the United States, representing America in the early stages of his career. He competed at the 2012 U.S. Olympic trials and the 2014 Phillips National Championships, but started representing Canada in 2015 — being able to do so because his mother is Canadian. As a Canadian, he won bronze in the 4×100 mixed free relay at the 2015 World Championships and placed fourth at the 2016 Olympic Games in the 100 free. In 2018, Condorelli switched to Italian sporting citizenship because his father was Italian. In his time representing Italy, he swam at the Tokyo 2021 Olympics, where he won a silver medal as a prelim heats swimmer on the men’s 4×100 free relay.

In order to represent a country at international competition, World Aquatics requires a swimmer to either be a citizen of the country or reside in that country for at least three years. To change sporting nationalities, a swimmer must wait three years from when they last represented a country before competing for a new country in international competition.
