Sarah Price is on top of the world

I'm Sarah Price, one of the world's top backstrokers.

Watch my masterclass

I picked up a gold medal at the European short course swimming championships in Germany in the 200m backstroke.

In 2001, I smashed fifteen British records, five Commonwealth records, two European records and a world record in the 200m backstroke.

And last year was even better. I took gold in the 100m backstroke in Manchester with a new Commonwealth record time of 1 minute 1.06 seconds.

I am a very focused swimmer. Backstroke is my thing and I am desperate to get my 200m record back!

Remember to move your arm in the shape of the letter "S" when it is underwater.

Check out my backstroke masterclass and you too can be a star in the pool.
