At the 1970 Commonwealth Games in Edinburgh, White was a member of the four-man relay teams that claimed gold in both the 4×100-metre and 4×200-metre freestyle relays. Individually he claimed gold in the 400-metre event. Continuing to the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich, White had a poor end to his career, placing fifth in the 1500-metre freestyle and being eliminated in the heats of the 200- and 400-metre freestyle events. White trained for the majority of his career at the Kew Swimming Club in Melbourne.
