Swimming Achievement

A pupil scooped a massive 19 medals in the recent County Swimming championships held in Cambridge and Whittlesey!  Our pupil at Bourne Abbey C of E Primary Academy swims for the City Of Peterborough Swimming Club.  She is a dedicated swimmer training for twelve hours each week both before and after school.

She is an all-round swimmer and won her clutch of medals swimming all the strokes.  She swims 100m, 200m and 400m races in front crawl, breast stroke, butterfly and back stroke.  Over the course of three weekends she came away with seven gold medals, six silver medals and six bronze medals and the shield for the overall best female swimmer.

Our pupil has also been selected by her club to train in an elite group of swimmers from across the county. Congratulations!
