Grace Harvey continued her rich vein of form since the Tokyo Paralympics with Commonwealth silver at Birmingham 2022.
Harvey earned silver in Tokyo before upgrading to gold at the world championships in Madeira, two months before a home Commonwealth Games.
And Harvey added another medal to her collection with another silver, finishing behind teammate Maisie Summers-Newton in the 100m breaststroke SB5.
Harvey's medal-laden 12 months was the culmination of a journey that started with her learning to swim at age four as a form of physiotherapy before setting her sights on being an elite athlete after watching the 2004 Paralympics.
She joined Hoddesdon swimming club at the age of nine and made her international debut at the 2018 World Para Swimming European Championships in Dublin.
And Harvey's trip to Tokyo for the Paralympic Games was not her first emotional journey to Japan.
In preparation for the Games, she went to Suzuka and was given the chance to walk for the first time using a state-of-the-art robotic suit. That was overwhelming for Harvey, born with cerebral palsy which causes her legs to spasm.
