Tom Hamer continues to dominate his para-swimming classification on the international stage having won medals at Paralympic, World, Commonwealth and European levels and and most recently defended his continental 200m free title at Dublin 2018.
It was gold again at the British Para-Swimming International Meet in the MC 200m Freestyle which secured him his selection for the World Para Swimming European Championships.
Dublin 2018 saw Hamer continue his world-class form throughout 2018, in the S14 200m Freestyle sealed gold, retained his European title and lowered his own World record.
He also picked up bronze in the 200m Individual Medley and was part of a World record breaking relay quartet in a non medal event, the S14 Mixed 4x100m Freestyle.
Hamer got a call-up for his second Commonwealth Games representing Team England in the first part of 2018 and he did not disappoint, he improved on his 2014 result and won gold in the S14 200m Freestyle in a world record time.
2017 saw Hamer selected his second World Championship team but due to the earthquake, the Mexico-bound team were unable to compete.
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.
