His athletic journey
Growing up, Kyle had a genuine interest in sports. In addition to swimming, he also played soccer. However, he ultimately focused on swimming instead of soccer after his breakout season in 2015.

In 2015, Kyle became the youngest swimmer to break the 49 seconds barrier in the 100 freestyle at Australia's National Swimming Championships. He then made his international debut during the World Championships in Kazan, where he won 7 medals.

At the Rio Olympics in 2016, Kyle won the gold in the 100-meter junior freestyle event. It was the first time an Australian athlete won the event's title in almost five decades.

In 2017, he missed the World Championships due to a heart condition. However, he returned to competition the following year and won the 200-meter freestyle and the 100-meter freestyle at the Commonwealth Games.

At the 2019 World Championships, he won the 4x200-meter freestyle relay title. He also secured a silver and bronze medal. Kyle recorded a personal best in the 100 freestyle event at 47.08 seconds during the event.

His comeback
Although his preparations for the Tokyo Olympics were delayed due to various health issues, he returned in 2021 to defend his title in the freestyle event. During the championship, his second 50 of 24.37 seconds was good enough to take silver.

Kyle established a world record during the 100-meter freestyle event with 44.84 seconds a couple of months later. Unfortunately, he couldn't compete at the World Short Course Championships due to a shoulder injury.
