Josef Craig

Josef Craig MBE broke onto the scene at London 2012 at just 15 years of age when he smashed the world record in both the heat and final of the 400m freestyle S7. In the process he became Great Britain's youngest gold medallist at London 2012; an achievement which led to him being named BBC Young Sports Personality of the Year for 2012.

Despite a reclassification from S7 to S8 following London 2012, Craig made an instant impact at his debut IPC Swimming European Championships in Eindhoven in 2014, coming away with a haul of three bronze medals in the 100m and 400m freestyle S8 and the 4x100m freestyle relay 34pt. He further asserted his dominance in the freestyle by taking silver in the 400m freestyle S8 at the 2016 IPC Swimming European Championships in Portugal.

In recognition of his achievements, Josef was awarded a MBE in the 2013 New Year’s Honours.
