I haves had a busy last few weeks. I flew out to the Netherlands, with Team GB, as part of the squad to represent Great Britain in the European Youth Olympic Festival 2013 in Utrecht.
I had a very successful meet, winning a gold in the 100m breast stroke in a new British Age Group Record and two days later won a bronze in the 200m breast stroke, notching up another British record, which had stood for 10 yrs! I really enjoyed my experience and hopes to represent Great Britain again in the near future.
