While attending high school, Milorad Cavic set four CIF records and a national high school record in the 50m freestyle. He continued to set records in college under Mike Bottom, with a school and Pac-10 record in the 100yd butterfly. In 2000, he represented Yugoslavia in the 50m freestyle of the Sydney Olympics.
In 2003, Cavic won the gold medal in 100m and set a new world record for Serbia at the European SC Championships. He also placed second in the 50m freestyle. In 2006, he won another gold and silver, and two golds in 2007. In 2008, Cavic won the gold in the 50m butterfly at the European Championships, and the silver in the 100m butterfly at the Olympics, the first medal for Serbia.
A Milorad Cavic appearance in Beijing in the 100m butterfly broke an Olympic record during the preliminary heats, but Cavic came in second to Michael Phelps by 1/100 of a second in the final. The Serbian team challenged the result but FINA later confirmed it.
