Share this page

Yvette Baker has beeen named as the Advanced Apprentice of the Year for Synchronised Swimming.

She was one of 102 athletes from the world of aquatics that successfully completed their unique apprenticeship, which has been designed to help young people aged 16 to 18 combine education and sport.

Baker, who is originally from Birmingham, was selected to join the British Synchronised Swimming Team, powered by British Gas, at the High Performance Centre in Aldershot in 2009 during the second year of the AASE programme. 

This meant that Baker had to move away from the family home whilst in the middle of her A-Levels but she still managed to keep up-to-date with her work and keep up her ambition to compete in the 2012 Olympics.

“Yvette works really hard at whatever is put in front of her, this is demonstrated by her success and she was academically a high achiever,” said Karen Thorpe, the ASA’s Talent Development Officer.
