James Wilby returned to top-level form in 2017 after a couple of seasons affected by illness and then became Commonwealth Champion at Gold Coast 2018 after storming to gold in the Men's 200m Breaststroke.
Wilby took a trio of medals on the Gold Coast to make him one of Team England's most successful swimming athletes, with bronze in the 50m and silver in the 100m Breaststroke, following his title over the 200m race.
His Commonwealth results were preceded by three trips to the podium at the 2018 British Championships, with gold again in the 200m Breaststroke. He took double silver over the 50m and 100m distances in Edinburgh.
He faced illness in early 2015 which hampered both his 2015 and 2016 seasons but has returned to form and made two trips the British podium in 2017, he claimed silver and bronze in the Men's 200m and 100m Breaststroke events respectively and secured his place on the world's team.
A Commonwealth Games call-up for Team England in 2014 proved fruitful as he was part of the Men's 4x100m Medley that won gold in front of the Glasgow crowd.
James started his swimming career representing York City Baths club for many years until his move to Loughborough University to continue his studies in Chemistry alongside training.
