Emily Competes in Swim England Winter Nationals
Ivybridge Community College Year 11 student, Emily Morgan-Hughes, recently competed in the Swim England Winter Nationals, in Sheffield.
Emily said, “I competed in the Open Women’s 200m Breaststroke on Friday, 6th December. Although I didn’t get a personal best time I came 5th in my age group, and 34th overall in the Under 18 category (this is in the whole of England). This competition is extremely competitive as I am not racing against my age group; I am racing people much older and stronger than me. (In order to get into a Youth Final you have to come in the top 10 in the Under 18 category.) I am very pleased with my performance and I thoroughly enjoyed my swim and my time in Sheffield.”
