Bronze World Junior Swimming Champion

 

Annabel won 200m Breaststroke bronze on the final day of the 2017 World Junior Championships in Indianapolis, USA at the end of August. The Upper Sixth Kent College pupil and RTW Monson swimmer took her personal best down to 2:27.42 to touch third in a thrilling final, a mere 1.74 of a second behind the USA’s Ella Nelson.

The World Junior Championships is a six day competition and the most prestigious junior event in the world, with many competitors this year having competed in the Rio Olympics.  The GB team celebrated a number of successes, including coming fourth in the mixed 100m medley, as well as fourth in the women’s 100m medley relay with a time of 4.01.30, 0.25 of a second off the junior world record.

Annabel said, "I couldn't be happier with my results from the World Junior Championships, it was the most amazing experience.  I couldn't have done it without the support network of my parents, friends and my school, who were there every step of the way, allowing me to train full-time while studying for my A levels."

Ms Julie Lodrick, Headmistress of Kent College said, “We are all incredibly proud of Annabel’s achievements.  She has worked so hard and thoroughly deserves this success – many congratulations!”
