Bath National Centre athlete Jacob Peters is set for his Olympic debut in Tokyo after returning to the senior international picture in 2021.
Peters - who trains under coach Jol Finck - swam strongly at the British Swimming Selection Trials to go under the Games consideration time in the Men's 100m Butterfly, finishing second behind James Guy and earning a place on the plane to Tokyo in the process.
Ahead of the Games, the Poole-born athlete was part of a 40-strong British team at the European Championships in Budapest, where he competed in both the 50m and 100m Butterfly events, three years on from becoming a European champion as part of the Men's 4x100m Medley Relay team in Glasgow.
He made his Commonwealth Games debut in Australia earlier that year of 2018 as a supporting part of the English silver medal-winning relay quartet in the 4x100m Medley on the final night of racing. He also competed in three individual events, the 50m, 100m and 200m Butterfly and reached the final of each.
He gained more international competition experience at his first European Championships in Glasgow, where he competed in all three of the butterfly events. He also picked up gold for his part in the successful defence of Britain's 4x100m Medley Relay title.
Earlier in 2018, he picked up a British Championship bronze in the 100m Butterfly in Edinburgh, accompanied by a fifth and ninth place finish in the 50m and 200m Butterfly respectively.
He got his first taste of international competition at the FINA World Junior Championships in 2017 and managed a seventh-place finish in the 200m Butterfly over in Indianapolis.
