Tom is a Welsh competitive swimmer who is best known for his participating in Individual medley events. He represented Great Britain in the Beijing Olympic Games in the 400m IM at age 20, where he took 4 seconds off the British record. He also represented Wales in the Commonwealth Games. In his best year Tom was proud to rank seventh in the world!
During your time at Swim School you will have the fantastic opportunity to be coached by Tom in the pool and to listen to him talk about how he became a successful competitive swimmer.
I hope to motivate young people to achieve their potential with my story of success and triumph but also sacrifice, hard work and determination
