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.
