Roberto Pavoni

Having won the 400m Individual Medley title at consecutive European Junior Championships in 2008 and 2009, Roberto Pavoni switched to Kevin Renshaw’s group at the British Gas GBR National Performance Centre in Loughborough for the 2010 season.

He made an immediate breakthrough, winning his first British title over 400m Individual Medley, then competing at the European Championships before reaching two finals for England at the 2010 Commonwealth Games.

Pavoni continued to improve in 2011, defending his British 400m IM title before reaching the final in the same event on his World Championship debut in Shanghai.

His Olympic debut followed in 2012 as Pavoni competed in the 200m Butterfly and 400m Individual Medley 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.
