WHAT TEAM ENGLAND MEANS TO ME….WITH TOM HAMER
01 Aug 2022

Team England holds a special place in Tom Hamer's heart. The 23-year-old made history as the first S14 swimmer to represent the country at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow eight years ago. Tom, on his international para-swimming debut, took silver in the S14 200m Freestyle, aged just 15, before topping the podium on the Gold Coast four years later, winning gold in a world record time of 1.55.88.

With the help of SportsAid, I did my thing. I didn’t come from a wealthy family, and there were times when I thought ‘I need a job’ but I stuck to my swimming. Thankfully it did pay off. It's about gambling and making sacrifices. I put a high risk in myself and invested the time in what was going to make the difference to my swimming.
