Jonathan started swimming as young child and he has always enjoyed it. From there, he started to compete at regional and at DSE events and by 11 Jonathan was competing at county level, representing Yorkshire.
Jonathan made his major debut at the 2014 British Para-Swimming International Meet in Glasgow where he became Youth Champion in the mixed class 400m freestyle.
He is looking forward to the atmosphere when competing in Rio. His closest friends on the squad are Josef Craig, James Crisp, Lewis White, and Matt Wylie.
His aim for Rio is to get as close as possible to the British record.
