TS5C Sponsored Athlete
The flagship fund has already benefited over 130 young athletes from Somerset in a variety of sports. TS5C sponsored athletes have already achieved significant results at both County and National level, and have competed for Team GB in international competitions.

This summer I have been to both European juniors, and British nationals.

European Juniors: Following selection, after the British championships in April, at the end of June, I travelled to Netanya, Israel with British Swimming for the European Junior Swimming Championships. I competed in 4 events, the 200 and 400 individual medley, as well as the 200 breastroke and backstroke. 

I made the semi finals in both 200 breastroke and 200 backstroke, swimming a large personal best in the breastroke. In the 400 IM I made the final, finshing 6th overall. In the 200 IM I was 11th in the heats, however I could not progress to the semi final, as only two per nation can qualify. 

Summer Nationals: Last week, at the end of July, I travelled to Sheffield for the British summer nationals. I had qualified in 7 events but chose to compete in 4. 

I made finals in all 4 events, winning two gold medals, and a silver in the 17/18 years category. I won gold medals in both the 200 and 400 individual medleys, swimming personal best times in both races. The silver came in the 200 breastroke, again, in a personal best time. In my final
