Abbie Wood - 2018 Cut Out.png

Abbie Wood made the step up to the senior level of British Swimming in 2016 after her call-up to the Europeans team and she will represent Britain again at this summer Glasgow 2018 Championships.

2018 saw Wood compete at her first Commonwealth Games for England, she competed in the Women's 200m and 400m Individual Medley, finishing seventh and sixth respectively.

She made her mark at the 2017 British Swimming Championships, two visits to the podium secured selection for her debut FINA World Championships in Budapest where she had to wait until the final day of competition to race.

Earlier in 2017, Wood claimed bronze in the Women's 400m Individual Medley in front of a Sheffield crowd before returning to the podium later in the championships to collect silver in the Women's 200m Individual Medley.

2016 saw Wood get an initial taste of the senior swimming scene as she represented Great Britain at the European Championships in London. She competed in three events the 800m Freestyle and then the 200m and 400m Individual Medley.

She was selected to represent Team GB at the first European Games in Baku, Azerbaijan in 2015. It proved a successful meet as Wood won gold in the Women's 400m Individual Medley and then a further two bronze medals in the 200m Individual Medley and in the 4x100m Medley Relay.
