Freya Anderson - 2018 Cut Out.png

Freya Anderson won her debut British title in 2017 and in doing so secured herself a first senior call-up to the British Swimming team for the FINA World Championships in Hungary, this was followed Commonwealth medals and European titles in 2018.

The Gold Coast 2018 Games was a first outing for Anderson at a Commonwealths and she won two bronze medals with Team England in the 4x100m and 4x200m Freestyle Relays. 

Anderson competed in seven events at the Glasgow 2018 European Championships and medaled in four of them - golds in both the Women's 4x200m Free and Mixed 4x100m Medley Relays and bronze coming in the Women's 4x100m Medley and Mixed 4x200m Free Relays.

She narrowly missed out on a podium in her preferred individual event the 100m Freestyle where she finished fourth overall.

At the 2017 World Championships Anderson raced in the Women's 50m and 100m Freestyle events before forming part of the British quartet in the Women's 4x100m Medley Relay on the final night of swimming in Budapest.

Setting a new personal best in the process, Anderson claimed her first British Championship gold in Sheffield in the Women's 100m Freestyle and earned a place on the Budapest bound team.

At the British Swimming Awards 2016 she won the Emerging Swimmer of the Year following a highly successful season that saw her win gold at the European Junior Championships in Hodmezovasarhely, Hungary.
