Tom Hamer impressed the Para-Swimming world when he stormed to silver at the Commonwealth Games which was his international debut and he has since built on this performance to win medals at the European and World Championships and the Paralympic Games in 2016.
The paralympic medallist enjoyed a winning return to action in 2017 with gold in the 200m Freestyle at the British Para-Swimming International Meet. He also stormed to victory in the inaugural Skins event.
In 2016 Hamer truly cemented his position on the senior international team as he collected two silver medals at his debut Paralympics, along with his IPC European title in the Men's S14 200m Freestyle in Funchal.
On his World Championship debut at Glasgow 2015 Hamer made an instant impact in the S14 classification securing himself a bronze medal in the 200m Freestyle and just missed out on the chance of another medal in the SM14 200m Individual Medley finishing fourth overall. A silver in the MC 200m Freestyle had sealed his spot on the Worlds team earlier in the year at the British Para-Swimming International meet.
Hamer made history in 2014, being the first S14 athlete to represent Team England at the Commonwealth Games, a silver medal for the taking on that occasion. From there he went forward to the IPC Euro Champs in Eindhoven to claim another silver, again in the S14 200m Freestyle.
Hamer moved to the National Performance Centre in Manchester in May 2014 and has shown huge potential with his swimming through the season. He holds British records in the 50m, 200m and 400m Freestyle and the 200m Individual Medley.
