William Barrett (born 1960)[1] is an American former competition swimmer who won a silver medal in the 200-meter individual medley at the 1982 World Aquatics Championships.[2] In 1980, he won a national title in the same event and set a new world record. He also qualified for the 1980 Summer Olympics in the 100-meter breaststroke, but could not compete because of the United States-led boycott over the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan.[3] The same year, Swimming World Magazine named him the American Swimmer of the Year.[4]
