Stacey's Career

Stacey's potential was clear when she scooped the 100m and 200m Breaststroke double at the 2003 European Youth Olympic Festival in Paris. She also showed talent in the medley events, finishing fourth as Hannah Miley won silver in the 400m IM at the 2005 European Junior Champs. Knee surgery put paid to her 2008 season but Stacey battled back to make her first World Championships in Rome in 2009, competing in the 200m Breaststroke. She continued to progress in 2010, reaching the European and Commonwealth finals in the 200m Breaststroke before reaching the World Championship semi-finals in the same event in Shanghai last year. Stacey secured her debut Olympic place at the 2012 British Champs, lowering her own national record to defend her 200m Breast title.
