NAGS14 Athlete Factfile: Meet Freya Davies

Freya Davies Athlete Factfile

On day three of the British Gas ASA National Age Groups Championships 2014, we asked Cleethorpes head coach Graham Bassi to us in the direction of one of his swimmers for a factfile – he pointed us straight to 12-year old Freya Davies!

Find out more about Freya in our ‘Athlete Factfile’.

Which events are you competing in?
100m Backstroke and 400m Freesyle.

What time did you get up this morning?
7:30 AM

What did you have for breakfast?
Cereal. I wasn’t made to eat healthily though. I chose not to go for a full English with all the extras.

What events are you looking forward to most this week?
Both my events. It’s my first time at Nationals and I’m excited to be here and competing at this level.

What’s your favourite thing been about Nationals so far?
The atmosphere.
Although now we think it must be becoming a national face of swimming on the ASA Nationals Hub…. obviously.

Who is your favourite swimmer on the GB team?
Pause for thought….. Lizzie Simmonds. (We think this may have been influenced by coach Bassi who used to coach Lizzie!)

If you could describe NAGS14 in one word, what would it be?
‘Opportunity’. It’s a great achievement for a swimmer to reach Nationals for the first time.
