Biography

Jazz Carlin has won medals at every level of international competition.

Jazz continued her strong form into 2015 taking three Domestic titles at the British Championships in London, 200m, 400, and 800m Freestyle were all hers. She then headed out to her fourth World Championships in Russia where she took bronze in the 800m Freestyle.

She hit top form in 2014, winning the Commonwealth, European and British titles over 800m Freestyle as well as European and British gold and Commonwealth silver in the 400m Freestyle, lowering her Welsh records over 200m, 400m and 800m Freestyle over the course of the season.

2013 was the comeback season for Carlin, bouncing back with a hat-trick of golds across 400m, 800m and 1500m Freestyle at the 2013 British Gas Swimming Championships then a fourth-place finish in the 400m Freestyle at the 2013 World Championships in Barcelona.

The combination of recurring tonsillitis and glandular fever disrupted her progress during the 2011 and 2012 seasons, preventing her from qualifying for the 2012 Olympics. Jazz qualifies for teh 2016 Olympics and came away with 2 Silver medals in teh 400 & 800m freestyle.

 Jazz proved she was more than just a relay swimmer as she became the first Welsh female swimmer in 80 years to win two medals at one Commonwealth Games by scooping 200m Freestyle silver and 400m Freestyle bronze in Delhi in 2010.

 Carlin’s international breakthrough came in 2009 when she was selected for the World Championship team after two bronze medals and a silver at the British Swimming Championships in Sheffield. The Welsh swimmer immediately made her mark at the highest level, helping the British 4x200m Freestyle Relay quartet to bronze in Rome.
