Roberto Pavoni

Having won the 400m Individual Medley title at consecutive European Junior Championships in 2008 and 2009, Roberto Pavoni won his first British 400m IM title in 2010 before making his European Championship and Commonwealth Games debuts later that season.

As well as defending his British 400m IM title in 2011 and 2012, he also qualified for and competed at his debut World Championships and Olympic Games, the latter in front of a home crowd at London 2012.

A fourth consecutive British 400m Individual Medley gold in 2013 was followed by a second World Championship appearance in Barcelona where Pavoni narrowly missed out on another final, finishing ninth in the 400m IM.

In 2014, he won a hat-trick of British gold medals for the first time in his career, claiming the 200m Fly, 200m IM and 400m IM crowns in Glasgow. Having narrowly missed the medals at his second Commonwealth Games, Pavoni then claimed his first senior international medals with 400m IM silver and 200m IM bronze at the European Championships in Berlin.
