Silver was the colour of resilience for Lewis Burras at Birmingham 2022.
The 23-year-old has rocketed onto the sprint freestyle scene post Tokyo 2020, and claimed a stunning silver in the 50m freestyle at his home Commonwealth Games.
Finishing in second place behind teammate Ben Proud, Burras later went on to pick up two more silvers in the 4x100m freestyle and 4x100m mixed freestyle relay for Team England.
Burras had already proved that he has the resilience of a champion out of the pool.
The sprinter was forced to battle back from a hernia operation in 2021, meaning he had to watch the 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 a year later, 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.
In 2022, Burras finally broke that British record at the World Championships in a time of 47.63, going on to win bronze in the 4x100m medley relay.
