Melanie Marshall



Melanie is England’s most decorated female athlete ever at a Commonwealth Games, winning 6 medals in one single games. Melanie has over 20 international medals to her name including World, European and Commonwealth. Melanie is also a double Olympian and 5 time Olympic finalist. Born 12/01/1982 in Boston Lincolnshire this is where Melanie laid the foundations for her swimming career. Her first international appearance was at just 13 years of age in the European Youth Olympic festival where she won 4 gold medals. She continued as an international for a further 15 years retiring at the age of 26.


Since retiring from swimming Melanie has now put her efforts into charity work, motivational functions and coaching. Mel’s ethos is to empower others and educate them on how to adopt the character traits necessary for success.




‘Success is a formula made up of character traits including dedication determination, resilience, sacrifice, enthusiasm and positivity. Learn how to live by these traits and you will be a successful in any walk of life. We all have the potential to be spectacular but often hold ourselves back, our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate but we are powerful beyond measure (Nelson Mandela) through experience and knowledge I try to inspire others on how to achieve this.'
