Alice Dearing - Cut Out

Alice put in a respectable performance in what was a blockbuster Women’s 10km Marathon Swimming Final at her debut Olympic Games in Tokyo, the Loughborough University athlete finishing in 19th place overall.

Former World Junior champion Dearing earned her Olympic selection with a brilliant swim at the qualifying event in Portugal in June 2021, surging forward and into the lead pack to place fourth overall. 

She placed 11th in the Mixed 5km Open Water event at the last World Championships in Gwangju in 2019, after finishing 17th in the Women's 10km race. 

Dearing previously competed at the World Championships in Budapest in 2017, where she achieved a top-25 finish in the individual 10km event and helped achieve a placing of fifth against a talented international field in the Mixed 5km Team Relay. 

Between those Worlds appearances, Dearing placed 12th over 10km at the 2018 European Championships. 

In 2016, she was crowned World Junior Open Water champion in Hoorn, the Netherlands, which cemented her position on the world marathon swimming stage.

Her senior international bow came at the 2015 World Championships in Kazan, when Dearing raced the 5km distance.
