Glenn Snyders is one of New Zealand's most gifted swimmers, and currently holds the national records in all men's breaststroke events, both short course and long course. In being selected for the New Zealand Olympic Team to Rio, Glenn becomes one of only four New Zealand swimmers to contest three Olympic Games.

He is the only Kiwi swimmer to have gone under the one-minute mark in the 100m breaststroke, clocking 59.94s at the World Championships in 2011, going on to lower this to 59.78s at the London 2012 Olympic Games.
