Amy's Career

Amy's first international medal came with 4x100m Freestyle Relay silver for England at the 2006 Commonwealth Games but she had to wait until the 2009 World Championships in Rome for her next senior long course championship. A whirlwind 2010 followed where she won 4x100m Medley Relay gold and 4x100m Freestyle Relay silver at the European Championships in Budapest as well as helping England defend their 4x100m Freestyle Relay silver at the 2010 Commonwealths in Delhi. After competing at her second World Championships in Shanghai last season, she lifted her first individual senior honours with 100m Freestyle bronze at the 2011 European Short Course Championships in Szczecin, Poland. Her confidence sky-high, Amy clocked PBs for silver in both the 50m and 100m Freestyle at the 2012 British Champs and secured individual spots in both for her debut Olympics.
