Biography

Penarth-born Ieuan is one of Wales' up-and-coming stars.

After his Dad taught him to swim at just three years-old, Ieuan joined Cardiff Swimming Club at the tender age of six and now trains at Cardiff International Pool with coach Dave Haller.

Ieuan started breaking records at just 15 when he smashed the British Age Group 200m record, he then went on to win silver at the UK School Games in 2008 and last year won the gold in the 200m at the European Youth Olympic Festival.

In 2011, the avid Cardiff City fan won gold in the 200m Individual Medley at the European Junior Championships and anchored the 4x200m freestyle relay to gold.

Certainly star of the pool and one of the stars of Team Wales, Lloyd came away from the Commonwealth Youth Games in the Isle of Man with five medals. Gold in the 200m freestyle, 200m IM and the 4x200m relay, a silver in the 100m freestyle and bronze in the 400m freestyle.

Cardiff City Swimming Club teammate and friend, David Davies, is tipping him as one to watch in the future.
