"Well its been a real tough year I have to admit!!! Following a fantastic 2013 with qualifying for European Youth Olympics with Team GB, I came away with a Silver and a Bronze medal in 2 relays and PB’d in all my events. 2014 has been a year with lots of general illness, I seemed to pick up everything and also had various gym injuries.
My fitness and technique suffered as my training was constantly interrupted. I hit a low in May, but continued to work as hard as I could determined to get myself back on track. I went to UK Nationals in Sheffield in August and although I didn’t PB on my best ever times, I have come away feeling really positive and motivated as every race I swam was a big improvement on where I was in May.
I am going to Sainburys UK School games in September and have also been selected by the ASA for the Inter Counties in the Autumn. I am excited to see where this next season takes me, I have learnt a lot about myself in the last 12 months and want to take this forward. Fingers crossed for next year.
