During the 2017/18 season, Ben has been quite busy. Ben is the current Staffordshire County open champion on 400 IM and 200 breast and has represented Staffordshire at the National County team Championships.
Ben represented the West Midlands in his first international meet in France, making both 400 finals, as well as representing them in Crawley for the English School Champs.
After being selected for phase 2 of the England Talent Programme, Ben made his first British Championships in Edinburgh in 4 events. In 2018, Ben qualified for 400 IM at British nationals in the 17/18 age group aged just 16. He also qualified for English nationals on 200 IM, 200 breast, 200 free and 400 free - in which he made 3 finals and won bronze on 200 IM and silver on 400 free.
Ben plans on building on these successes going into the new season!
