The end of 2017 saw Ella selected to represent GREAT BRITAIN at the world age championships in Bulgaria on Double mini trampoline. This was the first for Ella so she was unsure what to expect. Ella competed as an individual in age 13-14 against 27 other competetiors from other countries.

Emily is a student at Richard Huish College and plays for Bishops Lydeard Ladies, where she has been under the watchful eye of coach Julie Bowker.
I have spent the last month in Australia training with the Bath squad. It was amazing showing me just how I need to progress with my own training to step up to the next level in my swimming career.
In December I was in Sheffield competing at the English Winter Nationals to try to qualify for the Commonwealth Games England team.
TS5C sponsored, Rio 2016 Olympian Cameron Kurle of Bath National Centre showed some great form to win the Men’s 200m Freestyle on day two of the Swim England National Winter Championships 2017.
He was the fourth fastest qualifier going into the final, but almost a fifth of a second faster then the rest of the field at the end of the race.
Luke Mason, 16, from Weston College took part in a European cadet circuit fencing competition in December in Grenoble, France. He was up against some of the best cadets in the world.
Starting strong in the first round of pools he won four out of 6 bouts. The second round of pools was a lot harder winning 2, losing 3, these were literally by a point so could have gone either way.
As I am now living at university in Bath, I do not have much news, although recently I competed at BUCS, which is the inter university competition for swimming. Here I swam in the 200 butterfly, backstroke and individual medley. I made finals in all of these events, winning gold in the 400 individual medley, and finishing 4th in the 200 backstroke.
