Abbie Wood had to be talked out of quitting swimming in 2017 but her five-medal haul at Birmingham 2022 will make her glad she never did.
The Buxton native finished sixth and seventh in her two individual medley finals on the Gold Coast was just 11 hundredths of a second away from an Olympic medal when representing Team GB at Tokyo.
But Wood made sure she would not miss out in front of a home crowd, taking individual bronze in the 200m medley as well as earning a further two silvers and two bronzes in the relays.
Silvers came in the 4x100m freestyle and 4x100m mixed freestyle, while bronze was earned in the 4x200m freestyle and 4x100m mixed freestyle.
Wood also boasts European 200m medley silver and gold in the 4x100m freestyle and 4x100m mixed freestyle relays.
