Harvey is a 10x British record holder, European record holder in the S7 200m individual medley which she broke at BUCS in 2018, European bronze medallist in the S6 100m backstroke.

Harvey stole the show at the British Para-Swimming International Meet 2021as she came out on top of a stacked field in the Women’s 200m Individual Medley.

Harvey won the battle of the SM6 swimmers, finishing with a whopping 938 points and a time of 3:01.01.
