Craig's Career

Having shown promise as an S14 swimmer at numerous INAS-FID (International Sports Federation for Persons with Intellectual Disability) events, he made his IPC (International Paralympic Committee) debut at the 2009 European Championships in Reykjavik. It was a debut to remember as he stormed to gold over 100m Backstroke. He narrowly missed out on further medals at last year's Europeans in Berlin, finishing fourth in both the 100m Backstroke and 200m Freestyle. Craig struck a personal best to win MC 200m Freestyle bronze at the 2012 British Gas Swimming Championships, ducking under the Paralympic Qualification Time in the process. He then made his second Paralympic time at the British International as he scooped bronze in the MC 100m Backstroke.
