Name: Katie Gilman-Abel

Home town: North Hykeham
I’m 16 years old and currently studying for my A levels in Lincoln. I have been involved in swimming from a young age, learning to swim and then competing for City of Lincoln Pentaqua Swimming Club since the age of nine.
I volunteer for Pentaqua in the Learn To Swim sessions and as an official, and I plan to do a Level 1 Teaching Swimming qualification later this year.
As well as having a background in swimming, I am also a UKCC Level 1 trampoline coach, having competed at national level in trampolining. When I am 18, I plan to take the Level 2 qualifications in both these sports.
