Commonwealth gold medallist Sarah Vasey ‘delighted’ to represent Team EnglandJuly 27, 2022
With a home Commonwealth Games just around the corner, we take a look at the athletes who will be competing for Team England this summer.
After a successful outing the last time she wore Team England colours, Sarah Vasey will be hoping to emulate her gold medal-winning performances on home soil.
The Loughborough National Centre swimmer was crowned Women’s 50m Breaststroke Commonwealth champion on Australia’s Gold Coast in 2018.
She swam an impressive time of 30.60 to take her place on top of the podium and will be looking to defend her title in Birmingham this summer.
Vasey took to social media to share her emotions after being announced as part of the Team England squad.
On her Instagram account, she wrote: “Absolutely delighted to be representing @officialteamengland once again at the Commonwealth Games this summer”.
Vasey made her Olympic debut as part of the successful team out in Tokyo last year, but due to the pandemic there were very few spectators.
This time around, she will be competing in a home Games and in a separate post on social media, she also revealed she was “so excited to race in front of a home crowd”.
The 25-year-old reached the Olympic semi-final in the Women’s 100m Breaststroke at the rearranged Tokyo Games, but just missed out on a place in the final.
