Danielle Huskisson

After encouraging performances in the 800m and 1500m Freestyle events at the British Gas International Meet in March 2013, Danielle Huskisson was offered a spot at the British trials for the open water events at the World Championships, held at the Portuguese Nationals.

She seized this opportunity, finishing the top British female at the event to secure a spot at her debut Worlds alongside defending World champion and Olympic medallist Keri-anne Payne.

Still only 20-years old, Huskisson was far from disgraced against the best in the world in Barcelona, holding her own in the top six for the first half of the race before ultimately dropping back to finish 33rd.

Just six days later, she continued her momentum to place sixth and finish as the top Brit at the Turkey leg of the 2013 LEN Open Water Cup.

In 2014, Huskisson was the top British female finisher in the 10km Open Water event on her European Championship debut, placing 21st in Berlin.
