Graham + Sibbald’s Rising Star Programme: Craig Reaches Olympic Semi Final

Craig reached the semi-finals of the 200m Breaststroke at the Rio Olympics, his second Olympic games.

Craig first made a splash when he fought his way onto the British Team for the London Olympics, at just 18 years old.

The competition within Mens Breaststroke since 2012 has been unprecedented with 5 or 6 from the UK consistently within the World Top 20.  Craig has fought to keep within that top flight and battled to secure his place for Rio, producing the results when they were needed, and went on to finish 13th in the Semi-Final of the 200m event.

Craig has a tremendous amount of drive and belief in what he can achieve and continues to raise the bar every time he competes by focusing on effort, honesty and a desire to seek improvement.  This desire has seen him progress from a talented youngster to a world class performer in the pool.
