Lucy Hope will attend her second senior European Championships in Glasgow this summer after she played a valuable role for Scotland at the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games will be looking to put her stamp on a home continental championships.
Hope reached the final of the 50m Backstroke at the 2018 Commonwealth Games and finished 8th overall. She also played her part in the 4x200m Freestyle and 4x100m Medley relays that finished fifth and fourth respectively.
Her performances on the Gold Coast were preceded by three podium finishes at the British Championships in Edinburgh where she won gold in both the 50m Freestyle and Backstroke events, plus a silver in the 100m Freestyle.
In 2017 she travelled to Taipei to represent Great Britain at the World University Games and narrowly missed out on medals in the 4x100m and 4x200m Freestyle team events. This was off the back of two trips to the British Championship podium in Sheffield, where she collected bronze in both the Backstroke and Freestyle 50m events.
The LEN European Championships 2016 in London was Hope's first call-up to a senior British Swimming team provided an invaluable learning experience.
