Olympic swimming star James Magnussen leaves his harbor view apartment after a fast-paced 19-day campaign.
The retired champ, one of the fastest men ever in the pool, sold his Sydney waterfront pad on June 8 for $1.75 million, according to Pricefinder data.
The 130 square meter two-bedroom home in Drummoyne was put on the market by Ray White on May 20.
Magnussen, a 100-meter sprint specialist who won Olympic medals in London in 2012 and Rio in 2016, signed the contract for the $935,000 property in 2012, according to Domain’s Pricefinder records.

The complex includes an indoor pool, spa and gym and the last time an apartment was swapped in the exclusive building was in July last year. The apartment has had four owners since it came on the market in 1997, Pricefinder says.
The listing agent for the property was Chris Wilkins, of Ray White’s Inner-West Group.
Nicknamed The Missile, Magnussen became a household name in 2011 when he won the 100m freestyle at the world champions in Shanghai aged 20.
He retired from swimming in June 2019 and his time of 47.10 is the fifth fastest 100m freestyle in history.
Since leaving professional sports, Magnussen has started a gym equipment company called Habitual Equipment. His companion for several years is the lawyer Rose McEvoy.
