Commonwealth Appearances

Alicia Wilson was the opening statement that Team England needed to clinch bronze in the mixed 4x100m medley in Birmingham.

The swimmer put in a brilliant backstroke leg in the heat to seal a spot in the final, securing her teammates that crucial middle lane that led to a podium spot.

In September 2021, Wilson headed back to the University of California for the start of the new year, but unlike the other students, she was bringing a lot of Olympic stash with her. 

The 21-year-old had spent her summer break at the Tokyo 2020 Games competing in the women’s 200m individual medley, where she finished eighth in the final.  

Medley specialist Wilson has already enjoyed success at the Youth Commonwealth Games coming away from Nassau in 2017 with four medals, including gold in the 200m medley. 

That discipline also saw her claim a World University Games title in Naples in 2019.

Wilson swapped her Golden Bears hat to become a Texas Longhorn for her final year at the University at Texas.

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.
