Amy Smith’s first international medal came with 4x100m Freestyle Relay silver for England at the 2006 Commonwealth Games but she had to wait until the 2009 World Championships in Rome for her next senior long course championship.
A whirlwind 2010 followed where she won 4x100m Medley Relay gold and 4x100m Freestyle Relay silver at the European Championships in Budapest as well as helping England defend their 4x100m Freestyle Relay silver at the 2010 Commonwealths in Delhi.
After competing at her second World Championships in Shanghai in 2011, she lifted her first individual senior prize with 100m Freestyle bronze at the 2011 European Short Course Championships in Szczecin, Poland.
Smith clocked PBs for silver in both the 50m and 100m Freestyle at the 2012 British Champs and secured individual spots in both for her debut Olympics where she finished ninth in the 50m Free and 14th in the 100m Free.
She won 50m Freestyle silver for the fourth consecutive British Gas Swimming Championships in 2013 before going on to compete at her third World Championships in Barcelona.
