Mhairi started swimming later than most as she learned to swim at 19. She made her debut representing Scotland in 2004 where she broke the 200 and 400 front crawl world records.

Qualification for Athens that same year followed where she won 2 silver medals.

After retiring from swimming competitively in 2009, Love 2 Swim was established. We hope that with the leadership of Anthony, our team of teachers can share the knowledge and experience that they all have in teaching an essential life skill.
