Sophie Smith lands two top-three finishes for Britain

City of Leicester Swimming Club's Sophie Smith achieved two top-three finishes on her second Senior appearance for the Great Britain squad. The 16-year-old travelled to Essen, Germany, as one of a 33-strong squad for the "Duel in the Pool" against the host country.

Smith was third in 4min 46.73 sec in the 400m medley, an event in which British swimmers landed a clean sweep. Olympian Hannah Miley won the race with Commonwealth finalist Aimee Willmott second.

Smith was also runner-up to Miley in the 200m medley, clocking 2-16.66 which – like her 400m time – was just outside her personal best. Germany won the event by 240-195.

Smith, who is in a heavy training schedule, was pleased with her swims. Sophie is building up towards the British Championships, which are being held in Manchester from March 5th to 12th. She is hoping to turn in good performances there to qualify for the 2011 Commonwealth Youth Championships in the Isle of Man in August and the World Youth Championships in Peru in September.
