Commonwealth Games Statement

Posted by Denise Mead on 23 March 2018


This very difficult news has taken an unbelievable toll on my training and mindset for the Commonwealth Games. With this in mind, I have reluctantly withdrawn from the competition and will not fly out to Australia.

Team England have pulled out all the stops in trying to ensure my continued participation. I wholeheartedly thank them for their efforts and amazing support shown. I would like to wish Team England and the rest of the Commonwealth Countries participating at the Gold Coast, all the very best of luck.

My team and I have a huge amount of work to be getting on with. Having said that, I’ll be taking  a short break before the journey to Tokyo 2020 gets rolling over the next few weeks, back in the pool.

Lastly, I would like to thank my family, friends and fans for their positivity and kind words over the last few weeks, it means so much. Equally, I would like to thank the world class team around me for their professional guidance and support.



We  are all thinking of Ollie and hope to see him back in the pool training in preparation for Tokyo 2020.
