Craig's Career

Craig has been at the top table of British sprint freestyle for the past eight years, having won his first British Champs medal with 100m Freestyle bronze in 2005. He reached the 100m Free final at the national showpiece again in 2006, 2008 and 2010 before repeating his bronze in 2011 and most recently at this year's British Champs to seal a place on his first Olympic squad for the 4x100m Freestyle Relay. Internationally, Craig's finest result was at the 2009 European Short Course Championships in Istanbul where he reached the 100m Freestyle final and finished sixth. He also helped the British 4x100m Free Relay quartet to sixth at the 2008 World Short Course Championships in Manchester.
