Anna Hopkin made her World Championships debut in 2019, reaching the 50m Freestyle final to cap off a fine breakthrough year.
Showing her promise, Hopkin also placed 13th in the 100m Freestyle event before capping off her year by helping the Great Britain team to silver medals in the Mixed 4x50m Freestyle Relay at the European Short Course Championships in Glasgow.
With the 2020 season on hold, Hopkin made the switch the National Centre Loughborough to work with Mel Marshall, whom she had already built a raport with at previous international championships.
At her maiden European Championships in Glasgow in 2018, Hopkin helped Great Britain achieve fourth in the Women's 4x100m Freestyle Relay. Individually, she achieved top-20 finishes in both the 50m and 100m Freestyle events.
Hopkin also formed part of the bronze medal-winning 4x100m Freestyle Relay quartet for Team England on the Gold Coast earlier that year, as well as making the final in both of her individual events.
The 'pocket rocket' claimed her debut national title in the 50m Freestyle at the 2017 British Championships, going one better than her silver medal finish the previous year. She has since won that 50m gold again, in 2019.
