Laura Stephens has started to carve out a fine career in the senior ranks, with Commonwealth and then World finals spots building on the European medals she won at junior level.

A breakthrough swim at the 2019 British Swimming Championships in the 200m Butterfly - which saw her secure a silver medal, as well as bronze in the 100m Butterfly - earned Stephens her maiden spot on the Great Britain World Championships squad going to Gwangju, where she finished a very credible eighth place in the 200m Butterfly.

A year earlier the London-born swimmer produced a lifetime best time to qualify for her debut senior international outing,  representing Team England at the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast; the Plymouth based swimmer again made the final in her main event, before helping her nation to fourth in the Women's 4 x 100m Medley Relay.
