Michael Jones MBE made an impressive international debut for Great Britain in 2016 as he rose to the top of the Paralympics Games podium to claim gold in the Men's S7 400m Freestyle.
He is now set to make a return to competition on the international stage in Dublin for the World Para Swimming European Championships.
After struggling with injury throughout the 2017 season, Jones managed to successfully qualify for the World Championships but missed out on the opportunity to race due to the Earthquake in Mexico City.
His time at the British Summer Championships would have won him silver at the 2015 IPC Swimming World Championships that year and saw him finish second in the 2015 world rankings for S7 400m Freestyle. It was in the 400m Freestyle where he made the greatest impact, finishing fifth in the MC final at the British Para-Swimming International Meet in Glasgow, then slicing more than five seconds from his PB to win MC silver at the British Summer Championships in August.
Jones finished sixth in the MC 400m Freestyle at both the 2013 and 2014 British Para-Swimming International Meets before ducking under the five minute mark for the first time in that event for MC bronze at the British Gas International Swimming Meet in June 2014.
