Caitlin McClatchey

Caitlin McClatchey made her Olympic bow as a 19-year old, helping the British 4x200m Freestyle Relay quartet to fifth place at Athens 2004.

A year later, she was a World Championship medallist, scoring 400m Freestyle bronze in Montreal, 29 years after her uncle Alan McClatchey won Olympic 4x200m Freestyle Relay bronze in the same city.

McClatchey's stock continued to rise in 2006 as she swept to double Commonwealth gold for Scotland in Melbourne as well as 400m Freestyle bronze at the European Championships in Budapest.

She finished sixth in the 200m Freestyle at her second Olympics in Beijing in 2008 before winning her second World Championship medal with 4x200m Freestyle Relay bronze in 2009.

After two relatively quiet seasons, McClatchey bounced back to form at the 2012 British Champs, setting her fastest time since 2009 to clinch silver in the 200m Freestyle and securing her place at her third Olympic Games where she again reached the 200m Freestyle, finishing seventh.

She won her 10th British medal with 200m Freestyle bronze in 2013 then returned to the international stage the following season, competing at her third Commonwealth Games for Scotland at Glasgow 2014.
