Alice Tai has always been something of a trailblazer. By 17 she was already a world, European and Paralympic champion. 

Not only that, after an elbow injury denied her the chance to defend her Paralympic title in Tokyo in 2021, Tai instead took to punditry like the proverbial duck to water not surprising for such a keen swimmer. 

Since then she has undergone surgery to have her right leg amputated below the knee at the start of 2022 and now will be heading to Birmingham 2022 looking to defend the S9 100m backstroke she won in Gold Coast four years ago. 

The last time she appeared in a major championships was also in home waters, winning seven world titles in London in 2019.

Tom Dean aka “The SubmaDean” followed up his double Olympic triumph at Tokyo 2020 by making history in Birmingham, becoming the first Home Nations athlete to win seven medals at a single Commonwealth Games.
