Biography

Caitlin McClatchey made her Olympic bow as a 19-year old, helping the British 4x200m Freestyle Relay quartet to 5th place at Athens 2004. A year later, McClatchey was a World Championship medallist, scoring 400m Freestyle bronze in Montreal, 29 years after her uncle Alan McClatchey won Olympic 4x200m Freestyle Relay bronze in the same city. McClatchey's stock continued to rise in 2006 as she swept to double Commonwealth gold in Melbourne as well as 400m Freestyle bronze at the European Championships in Budapest. Her medal count has showed no sign of slowing down since with three medals from the World Short Course Championship and one from the European Championship medals in 2008, before another World Championship bronze in Rome in 2009.Caitlin McClatchey’s uncle Alan won 4x200m freestyle relay bronze at Montreal 1976 and credits him, plus her parents John and Louise who swam at the Commonwealth Games, for inspiring her to take up the sport.
