Jonathan Fox

Backstroke specialist Jonathan Fox is a Paralympic, World and European medallist who won ParalympicsGB's first gold medal in the pool at London 2012. 

A regular figure on the British Para-Swimming Team for the almost a decade, he has competed at two Paralympic Games, becoming Paralympic Champion at London 2012 in the 100m backstroke S7 to better the silver medal that he won on his Paralympic debut at Beijing 2008.

2014 and 2015 were quiet years for Jonathan Fox, working on returning to his prime ahead of the Rio 2016 qualification period and a move to the National Performance Centre in Manchester. The 2016 IPC Swimming European Championships saw him return to the pool to claim silver in the 100m freestyle S7 and gold in the 100m backstroke S7.

Fox has won medals at every major championships on the international Para-Swimming circuit and is now considered one of the veterans of the squad.
