Whatever happens in the pool at Birmingham 2022, Lewis Burras has already shown he has the resilience of a champion.

Burras was forced to battle back from a hernia operation last year, meaning he had to watch the 2021 British Championships from home, unable to walk let alone try to qualify for the Olympics.

But the Team England sprinter made a triumphant return in April scorching to the British 100m freestyle final and challenging the national record.

He also beat double Olympic champion Tom Dean in the process, regaining the title he first claimed back in 2018.

After a successful return from a serious injury, the sky is the limit for Burras as he heads to the Commonwealth Games in search of a first major championship medal.

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.
