Cockermouth's Jacob Leach has had a busy start to 2018 season after making a promising debut appearance at the Commonwealth Games and hopes to back it up with more international swimming at his first European Championships.

Leach got a call-up from Team England for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games where he reached the final of all three of his events. He followed this up with a strong set of performances at the British Para-Swimming International Meet to guarantee his selection for the Dublin-bound Europeans team.
