Profile

In the space of 18 short months, Sarah’s life changed dramatically. It started in 2008, when as a blissfully ignorant 14-year-old she jolted the swimming world by winning the Euro 100 fly final in Eindhoven, and then setting the world alight in Rome on two stunning days in 2009 with new world records on both days as she won the 100 fly World title. She was still three weeks away from her 16th birthday.

In 2010 she successfully defended her 100 fly Euro crown, and went into both the 2011 Worlds and London Olympics at or near the top of the world rankings, but things don’t always go according to form, and she left both meets without a medal. But it didn’t get her down: “There's no point being sad over individual losses, there will always be new races. The most important thing is to have fun, that’s when the results come.”

She was obviously having fun the following year when she won back her 100 fly World title in Barcelona, and enjoyed a stellar 2014 with 3 world records (50 fly, 200 free SC, and 100 fly SC), 3 Euro titles (100 free, 50 fly, 4x100 free), and 3 World SC titles (200 free, 50 & 100 fly). 2015 brought more fun at Kazan’s Worlds, where she repeated her 2009 feat of breaking the 100 fly world record on successive days to successfully defend her 2013 title, also winning the 50 fly gold.
