Leah Crisp is set to make her debut at a major international championships this summer, as the marathon swimmer impressed at the selection competition to make the marathon swimming team for the World Aquatics Championships in Fukuoka.
That selection meet in Sardinia was where the University of Bath athlete made her mark – taking 17th place at the World Aquatics Open Water Swimming World Cup following the two-per-nation rule. She then followed this up with 13th placed-finish in Settubal the following week.
Prior to her selection for the team this summer, Crisp has enjoyed significant success on a domestic level. In 2019, she took both the 800m & 1500m Freestyle British titles at the British Swimming Championships, before following it up three years later with another 800m Freestyle title at the 2022 edition of the competition.
