Lauren Quigley is one of the country's top Backstrokers and has competed at the last two World Championships and won two silver medals at the Commonwealth Games in 2014. 

21-year old Quigley (England) had another consistent year at the top level of British Swimming, a four-time medallist at the domestic championships in London including three silvers. Her second time at a World Champs saw her secure two final berths for 50m and 100m back, finishing 7th in both.

She completed her set of British titles with the 50m and 200m Backstroke crowns in 2014 before competing in her first Commonwealth Games for England at Glasgow 2014, winning 50m Back silver and 4x100m Medley Relay silver.

Having won her first national title with 100m Backstroke gold at the 2013 British Swimming Championships, Quigley impressed to reach the 50m back final and 100m Back semi-finals on her World Championship debut in Barcelona later in the year.

After making two finals at the Olympic Trials in London, Quigley repeated the feat at the European Short Course Championships in Chartres, finishing sixth in the 50m Backstroke and seventh in the 100m back.

She underlined her potential as a 16-year old, winning her first British senior medal with 50m Backstroke bronze at the 2011 British Championships, then adding silver on her international debut at the European Junior Championships in Belgrade.

Quigley continues a tradition of world class swimmers in her family, her mother Yvonne Stanley having swum internationally and her aunt Gaynor Stanley having competed for Team GB at the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles.
