The K-2 200m event was dropped for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, Heath therefore focused his attention on the single Kayak events in the following seasons.
At the end of the 2018, after discussions with GB Canoeing and his family, Heath decided to return to competing at 200m with the aim of defending his Olympic title at Tokyo 2020. After Winter training at Dorney Lake, Bisham Abbey and the Wey Kayak Club with coach Eric Farrell, Heath was selected for the GB Canoeing squad at the national regatta at Holme Pierrepont in late April. In May Heath won gold in the MK1 200m at both ICF Canoe Sprint World Cups (in Poznań and Szeged). At the 2019 ICF Canoe Sprint World Championships held in Szeged, Hungary, Heath regained his K-1 200m title thereby qualifying Team GB to enter a boat in the Men's event at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. In accordance with British Canoeing's "Joint Canoe Sprint & Paracanoe International Panel Statement" Heath’s gold medal secured his nomination, on 10 October 2020, to the British Olympic Association for selection to Team GB at Tokyo 2020.
With the birth of his and his wife Em's first child in September 2017 Heath decided to take a year out from competing in the K1 200m to focus on family life. He did, however, stay in training and became a member of GB Canoeing's new K4 500m crew. The make-up of the crew was unconventional, inasmuch as it consisted of four short-distance paddlers, but its performance gradually improved over the season achieving fourth place in the B Final of the World Championships in Montemor O Velho, Portugal.
Heath was awarded the MBE in the Queen's 2017 New Year Honours list for services to canoeing.
Heath has been awarded Honorary Doctorates by the University of Surrey, in 2017, and Loughborough University, in 2018.
British Canoeing held its Olympic Selection event for canoe sprint in April 2016 in Nottingham, during which Heath and Schofield won the K2 200m race, setting a course record and guaranteeing their nomination to the BOC to compete at the Rio Olympics. At the same event Heath won the K1 200m race making him "holder" of the right to also be nominated for this event in Rio. At World Cup 1 in Duisburg Heath was joint-3rd in the K1 200m and, with Schofield, came 7th in the K2 200m. A week later, at World Cup 2 in Racice, the duo won bronze and on the following day Heath came first in the K1 200m race. At the end of June Heath became the K1 200m 2016 European Canoe Sprint Champion in Moscow.

At the British Canoe Union's National Canoe Sprint Championships in April 2014 Heath won the K1 200m and (with Jon Schofield) the K2 200m titles. As a result, Heath was selected to compete in the K1 200m for the first time in a senior international event at the ICF World Cup 2 in Racice in the Czech Republic, where he won the silver medal 0.033 seconds behind Mark de Jonge. 20 minutes later Heath was back on the water with Schofield for the K2 200m final in which they came 4th 0.036 seconds behind the French boat. At World Cup 3 in Szeged Heath competed in the K2 200m only, winning silver with Schofield behind the new German pairing of Ronald Rauhe and Tom Liebscher. Heath and Schofield came 4th in both the European Championships (in Brandenburg) and World Championships (in Moscow) and won a bronze medal with Ed McKeever and Kristian Reeves in the Men's K1 4 × 200m relay in Moscow.
During the 2013 international canoe sprint season Heath and Schofield won the K2 200m silver medals at the first two World Cup regattas in Szeged and Racice respectively but missed out on a medal when they came 4th at the European Championships in Montemor-o-Velho, Portugal. Two months later at the World Championships in Duisburg the pair came second behind the Russians Postrigay and Dyachenko and were part of the fourth placed GB men's 4 × 200 m team.

In August 2009, the IOC announced that the 200 metres Sprint Canoe events would be introduced at the London Olympics, and Liam was persuaded to take up the sport again. In November 2009, at the age of 25, he was invited to train with the GB sprint canoe team, and in his first six months of training he was funded entirely by his parents. He paired up with Jonathon Schofield in the K2 200m and, in their first season, they won gold medals in the K2 200m at the 2nd World Cup in Szeged and the 3rd World Cup in Duisburg – where they also won silver as members of the 4xMK1 200m relay team – and became European Champions in July 2010.

Heath studied industrial design and technology at Loughborough University between 2003 and 2006. In his first year at Loughborough, he commuted to Holme Pierrepont near Nottingham to train in the Under-23s. In his second year, after suffering from appendicitis, he decided to give up canoeing to concentrate on his studies. Shortly after graduating he returned to canoeing and trained at the Wey Kayak Club under the guidance of Paul Dimmock. To finance his training Liam worked for a time mixing cocktails at T.G.I. Friday's in Guildford. Liam gave up on kayaking for the second time after failing to be selected by GB Canoeing. Although Liam Heath and Jon Schofield were at Loughborough concurrently – they overlapped for two years – they did not meet until several years later when they were introduced by Dimmock at a Nottingham regatta.
