Ellie Faulkner

After winning 400m Freestyle bronze at the inaugural Youth Olympics in Singapore in 2010, Ellie Faulkner quickly blossomed into one of Great Britain’s top senior swimmers, winning her first British medal with 1500m Freestyle silver in 2011.

She impressed with World Cup medals and a European final appearance in the 2011 winter short course season, then was one of the surprise packages of the 2012 British Champs, winning bronze over 200m and 400m Freestyle and silver over 800m Free to book a spot at London 2012.

Faulkner sealed her first British title the following season, landing 200m Freestyle gold as well as a pair of silvers over 400m and 800m Free to qualify for her first World Championships in Barcelona where her best finish was 17th in the 400m Free.

After repeating her 2012 results at the 2014 British Championships, she made her Commonwealth debut for England at Glasgow 2014, finishing seventh in the 400m Freestyle and helping the 4x200m Freestyle Relay quartet to bronze.
