Nick Pyle had a breakout season in 2018 that saw him win his first British title and first senior European Championship gold medal which signalled a changing of the guard for men's British backstroke sprinting.

Pyle who stormed to a surprise victory in the 50m Backstroke, plus finishes of sixth and fifth respectively in the 100m and 200m Backstroke booked himself on both the junior and senior European Championship teams.

He returned from Glasgow 2018 a double European Championship gold medallist after he played his part in the Men's 4x100m Medley and Mixed 4x100m Medley Relays and continued to gain elite level competition experience as he looks to cement his position in the senior ranks in the coming years.

2017 saw Pyle compete out in Indianapolis for Great Britain at the FINA World Junior Championships where he achieved a seventh-place finish in the 50m Backstroke and eighth in the 100m Backstroke.
