Did you know?

  • Dan is a lifelong Tottenham Hotspur fan - he was only four when he attended Spurs' open top bus parade after winning the FA Cup in 1991.
  • Also as a youngster, he appeared on TV channel Nickelodeon with his brother.
  • Away from the pool, he is something of a film-buff and relaxes watching films at the cinema or at home.

Daniel's Career

Dan broke through at the 2005 European Junior Championships in Budapest, competing over 400m, 800m and 1,500m Freestyle for a British team that also featured the likes of Robbie Renwick, Fran Halsall and Hannah Miley. After narrowly missing out on the British team for Beijing 2008 over 1,500m Freestyle, he made his senior long course championship debut at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi, winning 1,500m Freestyle bronze. He finished 14th over the same distance at the 2011 World Championships before sailing under the 15 minute mark for the first time to win British Champs gold at the 2012 Trials and seal his debut Olympic place.
