Max Litchfield continued to dominate British men's Individual Medley swimming in 2018, returning to the international stage following an injury and claimed two European medals.

Litchfield missed through the Commonwealth Games in the spring of 2018 through an injury but worked hard on his rehabilitation to be back for the Glasgow 2018 European Championships where he claimed silver and bronze in the 400m and 200m medley events respectively..

The Budapest 2017 World Championships delivered another two agonisingly closes finishes for Litchfield as he ranked fourth in both the Men's 200m and 400m Individual Medley events where he set new Commonwealth and British records respectively.

At the 2017 British Swimming Championships Max had his home crowd on their feet as the Olympic finalist showed his true potential winning gold in both the 200m and 400m Individual Medley with a dominant performance.

The 2016 Olympic Games were a debut outing for Litchfield as part of Team GB where he reached the final in the Men's 400m Individual Medley and smashed his personal best on the way to an incredibly close fourth place finish.

In 2016 Max competed at the London held LEN European Aquatics Championships achieving finals berths in both the 200m and 400m Individual Medley events. 

At the British Championships in 2016 he clinched victory in the 400m IM to take his maiden domestic title in a time of 4:12.05 and dipped under the qualification time for Rio 2016.

A European Championships debut in Berlin came in 2014 where he finished seventh in the final of the 400m IM. Max also swam at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow where he finished 12th in both the 400m Individual Medley and the 1500m Freestyle.
