After a promising junior career, Dan Wallace broke through to the senior ranks with an outstanding 2013 season in which he won domestic medals in both USA and Great Britain.
The Scottish swimmer qualified for consecutive European Junior Championships in 2010 and 2011, medalling twice at the latter with 200m Individual Medley silver and 400m Individual Medley bronze.
Wallace moved to USA for the 2012 season, training under Gregg Troy at the University of Florida before returning to British shores for two sixth-place finishes in the respective Individual Medleys at the 2012 British Gas Swimming Championships in London.
The following season saw Wallace make his mark both domestically and internationally, landing 400 IM bronze at the NCAA Championships then 200m IM bronze and 400m IM silver at the British Gas Swimming Championships.
Wallace continued his form into his debut World Championships in Barcelona, reaching the 400m Individual Medley final before clocking a Scottish record to finish seventh.
