Jemma Lowe made her senior breakthrough in 2008 as she claimed individual medals at both the World and European Short Course Championships, topped the podium with the British 4x100m Medley Relay quartet at the European Championships and reached the 100m Butterfly final on her Olympic debut at Beijing 2008.
A relatively quiet year in 2009 was followed by a spectacular return to form in 2010 as Lowe won 100m Butterfly bronze for Wales at the Commonwealth Games and 200m Butterfly silver at the World Short Course Championships in Dubai.
Lowe continued her progress in 2011, reaching both the 100m and 200m Butterfly finals at the World Championship in Shanghai, then claiming silver in both events at the European Short Course Championships at the end of the year.
She finished sixth in the 200m Butterfly at the London 2012 Olympic Games then landed more international short course medals with 100m and 200m Butterfly bronze at the World Short Course Championships in Istanbul.
After scooping her first British titles since 2008 with 100m and 200m Fly gold at the 2013 British Gas Swimming Champs, Lowe travelled to her third World Championships in Barcelona where her best finish was ninth in the 100m Fly.
The following season, she made two finals in her third Commonwealth Games at Glasgow 2014, finishing fifth over 200m Butterfly and sixth in the 100m Butterfly.
