Alys Thomas made her debut World Championships appearance at Budapest 2017 after she defended her British 100m Butterfly title in Sheffield and Gold Coast 2018 served up a first international title.

Thomas delivered an impressive swim to claim her first international title in the Women's 200m Butterfly at the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games. She also picked up a bronze in the Women's 4x100m Medley Relay for Wales in the penultimate race of the swimming competition.

At the 2017 World Championships held in the Hungarian capital, she competed in the Women's 100m and 200m Butterfly events where she was a semi-finalist in both.

Thomas topped the podium for the second year in a row to win the Women's 100m Butterfly. She also collected two further medals, silver in the 200m Butterfly and bronze in the 50m Butterfly to round off a strong performance at the 2017 British Championships.

2016 saw a debut British title in Glasgow as she claimed the 100m Butterfly gold and followed that up with silver in the 200m event.

Thomas represented Wales at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow and competed in the 100m and 200m Butterfly.
