Louise Fiddes became a world champion on her World Para Swimming Championships debut in London in 2019, claiming the SB14 100m Breaststroke title - a year after winning the same event at the European Championships.

Fiddes also took S14 200m Individual Medley bronze and finished fourth in the S14 200m Freestyle in an eye-catching start at Worlds level.

She had previously rounded off the 2018 World Para Swimming World Series with the overall female title, having claimed a trio of bronze medals at the Sheffield leg to ensure selection for the team for the European Championships in Dublin.

Fiddes’ European debut brought her four medals, including the SB14 100m Breaststroke title and three bronzes, in the S14 200m Freestyle, S14 100m Butterfly and SM14 200m Individual Medley events.

The Hatfield-based swimmer’s 2017 season saw her earn a call-up to the Mexico-bound World Championships team, where she was set to make her international competition debut - but an earthquake in the country meant she did not compete.
