Toni Shaw - 2018 Headshot

Aberdeen-based para-swimmer Toni Shaw has had a breakthrough 2018 season that saw her attend her first Commonwealth Games and and medal at her first European Championships.

After a series of impressive swims at the 2018 British Para-Swimming International Meet, she went on to compete at her first World Para Swimming Euripean Championships in Dublin where she won six medals, two of each colour and part of a World-record breaking 34pt 4x100m Medley relay quartet on the final day of racing. Shaw claimed individual gold in the S9 400m Freestyle.

The S9 swimmer reached the final of all four of her events at the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games for Team Scotland, with her best finishes coming in the S9 100m Freestyle and Backstroke where she was fifth at the touch.

Shaw, who had been due to represent Great Britain at the World Para Swimming World Championships but was unable due to the Mexico City earthquake, had started to make her name known at the 2017 British Para-Swimming International Meet as she moved up the event rankings.
