Luke Greenbank's 2018 season has started well with medals at the both the Commonwealth Games and British Championships, successfully securing his place on the British team for the Glasgow 2018 European Championships.

At his debut Commonwealth Games representing England, he collected silver as part of the Men 4x100m Medley relay on the final night of racing on the Gold Coast. In his individual events, he was edged out of podium finishes, ranking fourth in both the 100m and 200m Backstroke.

His 2017 season culminated with a debut outing at the World Championships in Budapest after defending his 200m Backstroke title at the British Swimming Championships earlier in the year in Sheffield.

Greenbank's second trip to the podium at the British Swimming Championships 2017 came in the Men's 100m backstroke after he touched second to take the silver.

His first senior outing came at the European Swimming Championships 2016 in London, gaining valuable competition experience in front of a home crowd. He made the move to British Swimming's National Centre Loughborough at the end of 2016, to join coach Mel Marshall after a  number of years working with her at the City of Derby.

The 2016 season started well for Luke, as he claimed his debut British title in the Men's 200m Backstroke which earned him a spot on the European Championship team in London.

2015 was a highly successful season for Greenbank on the international stage as he returned home for the inaugural European Games in Baku, Azerbaijan with three medals. Gold in both the Men's 100m and 200m Backstroke and silver in the Men's 4x100m Medley Relay.
