WINNERS 2009

Young Swimmer of the Year

Presented to a young person that shows particular promise in the pool at a young age and has achieved a high standard in swimming already. They have also excelled in achieving their Kellogg’s ASA Awards.

Gold
Anna Hulme
Age: 10
Lives: Ormskirk, Lancashire

Anna has been nominated to win this national award by her mum and dad after achieving virtually every ASA Swimming Award going despite having to overcome a great a deal of adversity in her short life. She was born with short bowel syndrome and spent her first year at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool. Her condition has an effect on Anna’s everyday life in many ways and she finds swimming a great way of releasing stress and relaxing. Anna swims for the City of Liverpool Swimming Club and is part of their Junior Development Squad.

Silver
Alice Vernon
Age: 8
Lives: North Petherton, Somerset

Alice devotes all her spare time to swimming and even during her school holidays she always wants to fill her spare time with a swimming course. She swims four times a week and recently joined the Taunton Dean Swimming Club, which she loves! She can’t wait to start competing when she is nine-years-old next year and has dreamt about meeting all the swimming stars so winning this award is a dream come true.

Bronze
Rebecca Merrill
Age: 8
Lives: Kesgrave, Ipswich

Rebecca is a member of Deben Swimming Club and loves her swimming – she asks every day if she can train and knows all the stretching and land warms-ups she has to do. She is so frustrated that she is only just eight and has to wait a whole year before she can compete officially!  Rebecca’s dream is to win a gold medal in the Olympics, like her namesake, the brilliant Rebecca Adlington.
