Tom Dean claimed the first senior individual medal of his career and made his World Championships debut during a busy 2019.
Dean's impressive performances saw him included in the British team for the Worlds in Gwangju in July, the University of Bath swimmer finishing 11th in the 200m Individual Medley and ninth as part of the 4x200m Freestyle Relay quartet.
That was followed by a memorable outing in the European Short Course Championships in Glasgow at the end of the year, when he secured silver in the 400m Freestyle - his first solo international medal in senior competition.
Dean narrowly missed out on a spot in the 200m Individual Medley final at the European Championships in 2018, after he posted the ninth-fastest time in the heats. The youngster also competed in the 400m Medley event and ranked inside the top 15.
Notably, though, Dean played his part in helping Great Britain claim gold in the Men's 4x200m Freestyle relay, picking up his maiden senior international title as they became European champions.
The 2018 British Championships proved fruitful for the Maidenhead-based athlete as he claimed gold and the domestic crowns in both the 200m and 400m Individual Medley events.
As a junior, Dean returned a multi-medallist from the 2017 European Junior Swimming Championships in Netanya, Israel after he topped the podium in the 200m Individual Medley and followed it up with a silver medal finish in the 400m IM.
