Mark Andrew Henderson (born November 14, 1969) in Washington DC is a retired American swimmer. He is an Olympic Champion, 3-time World Champion, 2-time Pan American Games Champion, 4-time Pan Pacific Champion and 5-time U.S. National Champion. He competed at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, where he was the butterfly leg of the gold medal 4 x 100 medley relay, which set the World, Olympic, American, and US Open record.
While in high school, Henderson swam for Curl-Burke Swim Club and was coached by Jeff King. He attended college at the University of California, Berkeley where he swam for Nort Thorton and alongside Matt Biondi, Sean Killion, Roque Santos, and Scott Jaffe.
At the US Olympic Trials in 1992, Mark entered the meet ranked 2nd in the world in the 100m butterfly, but concentrated too much on his competition and took out his race much too fast (under world record pace at the 50m mark). He led the race to the final 5 meters where he "bonked" and dropped from first to seventh place.
Mark returned to competition after an 8-month retirement with a vengeance. In 1993, Mark put together wins at the US Open and Summer US Nationals and two gold medals at the Pan Pacific Championships. He finished the year with a gold and two silvers at the inaugural Short Course World Championships in Mar Del Plata.
In 1994, Mark joined the first USA Swimming resident team which was located at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs. It was run and coached by former world record holder Jonty Skinner.
Mark has worked in the financial industry concentrating on Japan and U.S. equities for the past 12 years for the likes of JP Morgan Securities, Citigroup, and now Janney Montgomery Scott. Mark was married to Tamara "Blanchard" in 2007. They currently have two children - Brooke Katherine and Brady Andrew.
Since his retirement, Mark has been a member of USA Swimming's Athlete Executive Council (AEC) (2000–2008), USA Swimming Board member (2000–2008), United States Olympic Committee Athlete Advisory Council (AAC) member (2000–2008), Chair of the AAC (2004–2008), current Board member of the Leo Brien Foundation, Olympic solidarity representative to Zimbabwe (2000–Present), Co-founder of S.W.I.M (Swim With Inspiration and Motivation) learn-to-swim program for inner-city youth in San Francisco, and he is also a participant/ member in the Big Brother Program (1988–Present). In 2008, Mark was the recipient of the USA Swimming Athlete Appreciation Award.
