Anna Hopkin was the queen of relays at Birmingham 2022, winning two silvers and one bronze in the pool.
The 25-year-old revealed that taking up swimming with friends in Chorley, Lancashire helped build her confidence, it also set her on a path to Olympic and Commonwealth glory.
Hopkin, who specialises in sprint freestyle, helped Team England to 4x100m freestyle and 4x100m mixed freestyle silver and 4x100m medley bronze in Birmingham.
Her swimming journey began with a first national title in the 50m freestyle in 2017 before earning a bronze on the global stage at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games a year later.
It was at this time Hopkin swapped Lancashire for Arkansas, competing for the University of Arkansas while studying for a degree in Sports and Exercise Science.
The pandemic saw Hopkin return to England and join up with legendary coach Mel Marshall in Loughborough, a move that paid off in spectacular fashion as she claimed Olympic gold and a world record as part of the 4x100m mixed relay team.
