“I was thrilled to be selected for Team GB for the European Youth Olympics in Baku, Azerbaijan. I was really pleased with my swims – getting to the semi-finals in the 200m Breaststroke and finishing 9th overall was incredible, especially since I’d hurt my back and was having daily physio out there. My 100m Breaststroke PB was an added bonus.

I made lots of friends and living in the Athletes’ Village as a proper Olympian would do was amazing. It was a very valuable experience, getting used to being away from home and eating different food with athletes from lots of different countries and sports. We were very well looked after by Team GB, who brought lots of staff, including a Team Doctor and 3 Physiotherapists! British Swimming also sent 3 coaches with us. We were even treated to tea at the British Embassy with the Ambassador on our first full day there.

It was nice to have a day off at the end to explore Baku with the rest of the swimming team before our flight home. Thank you British Swimming and Team GB for selecting me and looking after me so well."
