Molly Renshaw has represented Great Britain at all levels of international swimming including the Olympic Games and most recently at her second World Championships in Budapest.

At her second Commonwealth Games for Team England, Gold Coast 2018, Renshaw won silver in the Women's 200m Breaststroke.

Silver in the 200m Breaststroke in Sheffield at the British Swimming Championships meant a call-up to her second World Championships and Renshaw finished 6th overall in the World Championship final.

Renshaw secured herself a call-up to Team GB for her debut Olympics in 2016 after she claimed silver in her preferred event, the Women's 200 Breaststroke at the 2016 British Championships.

She progressed comfortably through the rounds of the 200m Breaststroke, setting a new personal best and British record in the semi-final, ending the event ranked sixth overall.

Renshaw came home with two medals from the 2017 British Swimming Championships having begun her campaign with silver in the 200m Breaststroke she then went on to claim bronze in the 200m Individual Medley.

The 2016 Europeans in London saw Renshaw just outside of the medals with a fourth-place finish in the 200 Breaststroke but it provided the perfect preparation for the Olympic Games in Brazil.

In 2015 Molly Renshaw (England) attended her first World Championships in Kazan, Russia competing in the 200m Breaststroke after taking the domestic title earlier in the year at the London Aquatic Centre.

She won a pair of silvers at the 2013 and 2014 British Champs and this was followed by an impressive return to the international stage as she won 200m Breaststroke bronze on her Commonwealth Games debut for England at Glasgow 2014.  A silver medal followed in the same event on her European Championship debut in Berlin a month later.

After narrowly missing out on a place at the London 2012 Olympics, Molly returned to the European Junior Championships in 2012, winning 200m breaststroke gold in Antwerp.

Molly burst on to the national stage as a 14-year old in 2011, winning 200m breaststroke bronze at the British Championships in Manchester then silver in the same event at the ASA National Championships later in the season.  She also made her junior and senior international debuts in the same season, winning 200m breaststroke bronze at her first European Junior Championships then placing 20th at the World Championships in Shanghai.
