Making a splash

12 March 2018

Zoë in Year 10 has been competing at the British Swimming Championships in Edinburgh, where she found herself in the same warm up lane as British Olympians Adam Peaty and James Guy.

More than 500 swimmers travelled from all over the UK to compete in this prestigious event.

Zoë was one of two girls from Sevenoaks Swimming Club who qualified for the Championships.

At 15, she was one of the youngest swimmers there, which makes it even more impressive that she qualified for three events: the 50m backstroke, 50m freestyle and 50m butterfly. 

Zoë managed to clock times close to her Personal Bests, and finished higher than her entry seeding in all events.

It's a tremendous achievement Zoë, and we are so impressed with how you handled the pressure and delivered such great performances.
