Greg Butler grew up just a 30-minute drive away from Uttoxeter, the hometown of Olympic champion Adam Peaty, but the youngster is carving out his own lane on the road to the top of the sport.

He first burst on the scene in 2016 in becoming the fastest-ever British 14-year-old breaststroke sprinter over two distances, 100m and 200m.

And from there, Butler went from strength to strength, breaking Peaty's City of Derby Swimming Club records he set as a 17-year-old in 2018 and becoming the fastest 17-year-old British swimmer ever in the 200-metre discipline.

With the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham on the horizon, Butler is in fantastic form.

He brought home two silver medals at the FFN Golden Tour in Marseille in early March 2022 and also beat two Olympians to secure first place at the 2022 British Universities and Colleges (BUCS) Long Course Swimming Championships.

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.
