Giles Long MBE

Giles Long MBE

Giles Long MBE is one of the most successful and well-respected Paralympic swimmers of our time. His journey to elite success is very different from the typical athlete.

At the age of thirteen, Giles was diagnosed with cancer and feared that his dreams of being a professional swimmer where shattered, dreams that he has upheld since the age of 7.

Despite his cancer diagnosis, Giles became a competitive swimmer and broke his first World Record at the age of 17.

In 1996 he qualified for the 100m Butterfly at the Atlanta Paralympics and was ranked World Number One.

At the Sydney 2000 Paralympics, Giles again took Gold, setting a new World Record in the process.

He swam quicker than the world record at the Athens 2004 games… unfortunately so did two other people and he returned home having won bronze; eventually retiring from the sport in 2007.
