Lewis Burras Headshot 2023

Lewis Burras put together a string of impressive performances on his senior international debut in 2022 - picking up four medals across both the World Championships and Commonwealth Games. With the athlete back again for this summer's 2023 World Aquatics Championships in Fukuoka, he will be looking to continue in the same vein.

The 2022 World Aquatics Championships in Budapest kicked off the summer for the athlete, as he made finals in the 50m & 100m Freestyle events, finishing seventh in both. The team events in the same competition gave Burras a first senior international medal in the 4x100m Medley Relay, with the group taking bronze. The 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham also provided a platform for success for the Englishman, as he took a total of three silver medals with Team England, including a trip to the podium for his performance in the individual 50m Freestyle. 

In his first performance of the 2022 British Championships, in the Men's 100m Freestyle, he became the first British swimmer in 2022 to go under the 48-second barrier when he won gold, going an agonising 0.01 seconds shy of Duncan Scott's British record. This was then followed up with another win in the 50m Freestyle, where his explosive speed saw him to the wall first.
