Did you know?
- Chloe looks up to double Olympic champion Rebecca Adlington and tries to mimic her freestyle technique when she swims.
- When she found out she was on the Paralympic team, Chloe admits she couldn't stop screaming and running up and down the stairs at home.
- She prefers swimming in the evening to the morning and likes going to the cinema with friends away from the pool - her favourite film is Titanic.
Chloe burst into national recognition as a 12-year old in 2011, breaking the British S14 short course 200m Backstroke record in March before helping herself to MC 200m Freestyle silver and MC 100m Backstroke bronze at the British Gas ASA National Youth Championships. She continued her rapid progress into early 2012, winning MC 200m Freestyle bronze at her first British Gas Swimming Championships at London Aquatics Centre in March. Little more than a month later, Chloe sliced more time off her personal bests in her two main events of 200m Freestyle and 100m Backstroke and ducked under the Paralympic qualification time for the S14 classification in both. At just 13-years old, Chloe will be the youngest swimmer for ParalympicsGB at the London 2012 Paralympic Games.
