Lauren Cox holds several strings to her bow, studying for a degree at the University of Loughborough and being one of the most promising swimmers in the country.
And, also notably, the 20-year-old demonstrates a strong environmental conscience whenever she swims.
Cox is an ambassador for INSTANT SWIM, a company that creates performance swimwear entirely from recycled plastics and donates a percentage of its profits to Ocean Generation - a charity set up to combat ocean threats.
Having picked up a string of titles and medals throughout her junior career, Cox broke through at the British Swimming Championships this summer with a personal best winning her 50m backstroke gold.
With a Team England spot sealed for the summer, the Midlands star will be eager to make her mark in Birmingham.
