Read all about the Young Swimmer of the Year from the Kelloggs/ASA Swimtastic Awards 2008.

2008 Winners

Highly commended: Cameron Smith; Norwich
Age 7
He was nominated by his teacher for his amazing achievements across an array of swimming levels, including gaining his 600m badge.

Bronze: Jess Henry; Norwich, Norfolk
Age: 4 and a half
Six months ago Jess had a fear of deep water but she has overcome this to become a confident swimmer and can now swim 15m and jump into the deep water she was so afraid of.

Silver: Bellamy Clarke; Bekley Heath, Kent
Age: 2 and a half
He was nominated by his mum because swimming has given him such confidence and he can often be seen with just his smile above the surface of the water. More remarkable because at just four days old he was seriously ill and ended up on life support at Great Ormond Street Hospital so it is a miracle he has recovered so completely.

Gold: Bailey Wilkes; Birchwood Green, North Herts
Age 6
She was nominated by her coach because since she was four she has been swimming at standard way above that of her age and has continued to make progress in her swimming despite fracturing her ankle on New Year’s Eve and being put in plaster for a month!
