Adam Barrett has made a rapid rise to the top in recent years under the guidance of former World Championship gold medallist James Gibson at Loughborough.
He won his first British medal with 100m Butterfly bronze at the 2013 British Championships then set his first British record over the same event in the 2013 short course season.
Last season, Adam made his international breakthrough, landing 100m Fly bronze then swimming the butterfly leg as England won gold 4x100m Medley Relay gold at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.
Less than a month later, he finished fourth over 100m Fly on his European Championship debut then was on top of the podium again with 4x100m Medley Relay gold.
