Larkin won a gold medal in the 200-metre backstroke and a silver medal in both the 50-metre and 100-metre backstroke at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland, and two gold in the 100-metre and 200-metre backstroke at the 2015 FINA world championships in Kazan, Russia.
His personal best in long course events are 52.11 for the 100 metre backstroke and 1:53.17 for the 200 metre backstroke, both set at the Dubai world cup in November 2015.
In November 2015, Larkin broke the short course world record in the 200-metre backstroke, lowering it to 1:45.63.
At the 2016 Summer Olympics, Larkin represented Australia in the 100m and 200m backstroke and the 4 x 100m medley relay. In the 100m backstroke, Larkin was the third fastest in the heats with a time of 53.04 and third fastest out of the two second semi-final heats with a time of 52.70.
Despite only being three hundredths slower than his gold medal winning time at the 2015 world championships, he missed out on a medal, finishing fourth in the final with a time of 52.43.
