Andrew's Career

Andrew has made rapid progress since working under Dave McNulty at the British Gas ITC in Bath. He moved to Bath on the back of reaching the European Junior Championship 200m Breaststroke final in 2008 and broke through into the senior ranks in 2010 to finish fourth in the same event at the Commonwealth Games in Delhi. Last season brought further success for Willis as he ducked under 2:11 minutes for the first time in his career, clocking a 2:10.49 en route to a final appearance on his World Championship debut in Shanghai. He lifted his first British Champs title in 2012, winning the 200m Breaststroke title to book his spot at his first Olympic Games.
