Swimming has been part of my life since I was very young. When I was 11 one of the other swimmers at my club said his goal was to compete at the Olympic Games, and I thought, 'I want to do that'. It was the start of a journey that has filled the last 12 years of my life
It was an absolute honour to be one of the 5 British men who went out to defend the 4x200m freestyle World title in Budapest at the 2017 FINA World Championships. Standing on the podium to receive the Gold medal, hearing the anthem and watching the flag rise was an unbelievably proud moment

I'm incredibly proud to have been selected to represent Team GB at the Olympics in Rio. Having the chance to compete in the 4x200m freestyle relay, winning the silver medal with the team and getting my name in the British record books - it had been my dream for so long to win an Olympic medal that I still can’t really believe it has happened. It was a massive privilege to be part of it

Achieving selection for Team Scotland to swim at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow was a real high point. Winning a silver medal there in front of the home crowd at Tollcross was a very special moment. Representing GB at the European Championships in Berlin just a short while later, bringing back a team gold and two new Scottish records, was an amazing end to a summer I will never forget

Thank you to everyone who has given me so much support in my swimming career over the years. I couldn't have done it without you. From day 1 until now, every bit has helped and made a real difference.
