Derventio swimmer Abbie Wood has been nominated for a European award after winning two golds and two silvers at the 2013 European Youth Olympic Festival in Utrecht.
The 14-year old was the star of the British team in the Netherlands, carrying the GB flag at the closing ceremony after her medal haul, which included golds over 400m Individual Medley and 200m Breaststroke.
Wood has been named on the five-person shortlist for the European Olympic Committee’s Piotr Nurowski Best Young European Athlete Prize.
The vote for the winner will take place at the EOC General Assembly in Rome on 22 November.
Well done Abbie and everyone at Derventio!
