Ben Proud really announced himself into the international sprint scene by securing golds at the Commonwealths Games in the 50m Freestyle, the 50m Butterfly and the 4x100m Medley Relay and he hasn't looked back since.
Proud made his Olympic Games debut at Rio 2016 and has now competed at every level on the international swimming stage, earlier in 2016 he secured double bronze at the LEN European Championships in the Men's 50m Freestyle and Butterfly held at the London Aquatics Centre.
After taking two senior titles at the 2015 British Championships in the 50m Freestyle and 50m Butterfly, proud headed off to Kazan for the World Championships where he made the finals for both events respectively.
In 2014, still only 19 years old, Proud (England) won his first senior international medals, claiming the 50m Freestyle and 50m Butterfly double on his Commonwealth debut for England at Glasgow 2014, then adding 50m Butterfly bronze and 4x100m Medley Relay gold for Great Britain at his first European Championships the following month.
He carved his name in the history books three months later as he blew Mark Foster’s 10-year old British 50m Butterfly record out of the water, breaking it in the semis and final en route to his first British Swimming Championship title.
Proud was in the form of his life in Sheffield as he set further personal bests to claim 50m Freestyle silver and 100m Freestyle bronze and secure a spot on the team for the 2013 World Championships in Barcelona where he finished 18th in the 50m Freestyle and 11th in the 50m Butterfly.
Having won European Junior Championship silver over 50m Butterfly the previous season, he was the top British sprinter at the inaugural British Gas International Meet in March 2013, winning 50m Fly gold and 50m Freestyle silver in Leeds.
