The 26-year-old was banned from the Australia team for the 2008 Olympics in Beijing after assaulting fellow swimmer and former triple Commonwealth champion Simon Cowley, an attack for which he was subsequently given a suspended jail sentence.

The conviction also saw D'Arcy dropped from the team for the 2009 World Championships.

The butterfly swimmer returned for the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi and last year's Olympics in London where he went out in the semi-finals.
