Stephen Milne - Torso

With both Olympic and World medals, Stephen Milne continues to demonstrate his ability on the world swimming stage.

At the World Championships in Budapest, Milne was one-quarter of the gold medal winning Men's 4x200m Freestyle Relay team that successfully defended Britain's world title in a new British record time. He also competed in the Men's 400m Freestyle and recorded a top 20 finish.

The Olympic silver medallist went into his first competition of 2017 and won a silver and a bronze medal at the British Swimming Championships in the 400m and 1500m Freestyle respectively and in doing booked his place on the World Championship team.

Rio 2016 also saw Milne compete in the Men's 400m Freestyle at Rio 2016 where he finished 13th and set a new personal best time in the process and his other individual swim of the games, the Men's 1500m Freestyle saw him finish 10th and just missing out on a finals berth.

A debut World Championship appearance for Perth City based swimmer Milne (Scotland) saw him secure two final berths in the 800m and 1500m Freestyle, finishing seventh and fifth respectively. Earlier in the season, Milne took the British title for the 1500m Freestyle event in London.

He made light work of the transition to the senior international stage in 2014, reaching five individual finals across the Commonwealth Games and European Championships respectively.

While he won 4x200m Freestyle silver with the Scottish team at Glasgow 2014, his fastest performances were at the Europeans in Berlin where he finished fourth over 800m and 1500m Freestyle, setting national records in both and ducking under 15 minutes for the first time in the latter.

Milne’s first senior British medal came in 2013, following on from a sixth place in the 400m Freestyle with bronze over 1500m Free behind Daniel Fogg and Jack Burnell

He competed at the 2012 European Junior Championships in Antwerp, finishing eighth over 200m Freestyle and narrowly missing out on a medal as the 4x200m Freestyle Relay quartet – which also featured James Guy – finished fourth.
