Fletcher is Welsh National Champion
During the Easter holiday, Olivia Fletcher, Year Eleven, competed in the Welsh Championships, a ‘closed’ event which is only open to Welsh swimmers, meaning that the swimmer who wins becomes Welsh Champion.
We are delighted to report that Olivia won the 1500m front crawl, the equivalent to 30 lengths of a 50m Olympic size pool – twice the size of Perdiswell pool, and also the 400m individual medley. In addition to this success, she gained a Silver and Bronze in other events.
This is the first time that Olivia has swum in Open events. As a 16-year-old, she is swimming in the 17 and over category. To become Welsh National Champion in two events is a superb achievement.
Well done Olivia – National Champion twice over!
