Emily Large Headshot 2023

Emily Large returns to the Great Britain squad at this summer's World Aquatics Championships in Fukuoka, five years after her senior international debut.

The Millfield School athlete made a blistering return to form in the Women's 200m Butterfly at the 2023 British Swimming Championships - achieving the consideration time and the silver medal to give her a spot at her first World Championships. A fourth-placed finish in the 100m Butterfly also signalled a statement of intent from the athlete to remain in the fray ahead of next year's Olympic Games in Paris.

Large has remained largely in and around the upper echelons of British Swimming in the interim years since her GB debut at the European Championships of 2018 - competing for London Roar in the International Swimming League as they finished third overall in the 2020 season.

A debut Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast in 2018 for Team England provided Large with invaluable competition experience, reaching the final of her preferred 200m Butterfly. At the 2018 British Championships, she reciprocated her result in the previous year, bronze in the 200m Butterfly, while the year also brought outings in the 100m and 200m events at a home Europeans in Glasgow.

Large, who at the time trained with Newcastle Swim Team, rounded off her 2017 season with a World Junior title in the Women's 200m Butterfly over in Indianapolis after reaching the British Championship podium earlier in the year, to take bronze in the same event.

Early international success came in the form of a European title at the continental junior championships in Hungary, where again she took the title in her main event; 200m Butterfly. In 2015 she formed part of the Team GB contingent that attended the European Youth Olympic Festival in Tbilisi and made a visit to the podium, that time to collect 200m fly silver.
