School Games 2017

The school games was an amazing experience and I was glad to represent England Central in the competition. I have had two training sessions prior to this and I'm very pleased to have got two silver medals in the 400IM and the girls medley relay. I also managed to PB in my 100free in the relay which is a great way to start the season

National Open Water

The day after returning home from Hungary I competed in the 3K at national open water. It was a good relaxed swim after a long week and I managed to place 3rd overall in the 15 year age category.

EYOF

Representing team GB at the European Youth Olympic Festival in Györ, Hungary, was a huge honour. I raced well with two PBs in my 400IM and 800free and placing fifth overall in both. My 400free and 200IM did not go as well but I was still very happy to be given this amazing opportunity. The atmosphere was great and I would love to be involved in another international multi sport event.

BEST FEST

I'm back from the England Talent Phase 3 camp in Mallorca. I really enjoyed both the training and racing and I learnt a lot, such as corkscrew turns and feeding. It was my first time racing in the sea and although the 5k was very wavy and tricky to navigate I managed to place second in the elite junior female and in the 1.5k I placed fourth which I was very pleased. In the 7k I did have some trouble sighting the last two buoys but I got the chance to practice my corkscrew turns and the feeding stations.

BEST FEST day one

I have just finished my 5Km open water race. It was my longest swim and first time in the sea. I found some parts very challenging but I managed to place second in the elite junior female category which I am really pleased about. Two training sessions tomorrow and the back in the sea for the 1.5Km on Tuesday

British Swimming Championships

This week I raced at Sheffield for the Olympic trials. My 800 and 200 free were slightly off my PBs. However I managed to get a 2 second PB in my 200IM. My 400IM went very well. I got a 5 second PB and made the junior 17/u final. In my 400free I got a 1 second PB and made the junior final again where I got another 4 second PB and finished second in the 17/u age bracket and broke the county record

Sheffield Premier Meet

Last weekend I competed in the Sheffield Premier meet. It was another quite successful meet for me as I managed to gain my 200 free GB trials time. I got a 2 second PB in my 100 free, a 1 second PB in my 50 free and a two second PB in my 400 free. I was happy to be racing again and pleased with how I performed.

Last weekend I travelled to Liverpool as part of the East Midlands team. It was a very successful meet for me and I competed in the intermediate 200IM, 200back, 400IM, 800free, and the senior relays. I was able to PB in all my events and won all my individual events except the 800 where I came second. I also managed to get my GB trials time for my 200IM. In my 400IM I was able to break the English schools record.

At the end of January I traveled to Amiens, France to compete for three days. My first race was 800 free and I got a three second PB breaking the county record for the second time. I also managed to get a second place. I also raced the 200, 400 free, 200, 400IM and the 200 back. For the 200IM I came third and for 400IM I came second. I was very pleased with how I competed and am looking forward to future competitions.

Winter Nationals and England Talent Camp

During Winter nationals I competed in the 800, 400 free and 400, 200, and 100IM. It was quite a successful meet. I got a two second PB in my 200IM and was on my times in the rest.

The day after nationals, I went to Coventry for three days for the England Talent Camp phase 2. I was selected for the 400 free. It was a good three days where I've learnt how to improve my skills and I made some new friends.

I have also been selected to compete in France with the East Midlands team in an international competition.
