Having first competed at national level in 2013, Bird made the Team GB squad for the 2015 European Youth Olympic Festival in Tbilisi, Georgia as a butterfly swimmer and also competed at the 2017 European Junior Championships in Israel once he switched his focus to freestyle. After moving to train at the British Swimming National Centre, Bird’s performances culminated in a senior international debut at the rescheduled 2020 Olympic Games.
