Music loving Lewis Daly started playing water polo in year seven at Bolton School and three years later was selected for the Great Britain Youth Team.
The City of Manchester player joined the GB team at the 2013 Slowianka Cup in Poland as they prepared for the following month's European Championships qualification tournament, Daly's first formal international tournament.
Whilst taking part in the European qualifiers in Turkey in May 2013 the Bolton School pupil had more than water polo on his mind as it was organised for him to sit his GCSE maths exam in a local school, which was an important one for the budding paramedic.
At the 2014 Duke of Cambridge Cup, held in October at RAF Cranwell, the 18-year-old impressed again and was selected to captain the English Schools Swimming Association (ESSA) senior boys squad as they compete in the International Invitation Tournament in Malta this July.
