Biography >
Oliver learnt to swim at the age of two at Medina Swimming Club on the Isle of Wight. He moved to Bristol aged eight where he swam for Thornbury Swimming Club until the age of 15 when he moved to the City of Bristol Swimming Club when he started to take swimming more seriously.

He went to Glasgow University aged 18 where he joined the City of Glasgow swim team. He nearly stopped training altogether but still swam strongly so Glasgow University offered him a year out to train with the Uiversity of Bath.
