Brock Whiston 2023 cut

Brock Whiston has represented Great Britain at three consecutive Para Swimming World Championships, having made her mark on her international debut at London 2019 with four golds and multiple world records.

In front of a home crowd at Manchester 2023, the Barking and Dagenham Aquatics swimmer made a hat-trick of world championship finals. Whiston's best result coming as she finished just outside the podium places in the SB9 100m Breaststroke.

Following a period away from international competition, Whiston competed in two events at her second world championships in 2022 - making the final of the SM9 200m Individual Medley in Madeira.

Whiston won gold in the SB8 100m Breaststroke, SM8 200m Individual Medley, 34pt 4x100m Medley Relay and 34pt 4x100m Freestyle Relay events at her debut Worlds in London, winning each of the four finals in which she featured. 

Whiston began to emerge at the forefront of the para-swimming scene in 2018,  as she picked up two golds - in the MC 100m Breaststroke and MC 200m Individual Medley events - and a bronze at the British Para-Swimming International Meet in Sheffield. 

Brock loved swimming lessons as a youngster, and they soon gave her a love for the sport, along with an admiration for Ellie Simmonds and her achievements. Swimming is her passion and her great ambition would be to win a Paralympic medal.
