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.

At Dublin 2018 Leach reached the final of his preferred S9 100m Backstroke and finished seventh. He also went in the 200m Individual Medley but just missed out on a place in the final, tenth was his final ranked position.
