Wylie is an emerging talent in the S9 classification on the British Para-Swimming team, new to the podium programme for 2015 following a set of key performances in 2014 that raised his profile.
In 2014 he made his IPC Swimming European Championship debut in Eindhoven, qualifying for the final in both the 400m freestyle S9 and the 50m freestyle S9, finishing 4th and 8th respectively. At the 2016 IPC Swimming European Championships two years later he topped the podium in the 50m freestyle S9.
Wylie trains alongside Paralympic gold medallist Josef Craig and he has set British records in four events in the S9 classification, including the 50m and 100m freestyle.
