TIVERTON Swimming Club’s Emily Abraham (left) has been chosen to represent Devon at the inter-counties championships in Sheffield next month.
The 13-year-old from Uffculme Academy was delighted when she received the letter from the Devon ASA.
Emily, who has competed since the age of nine, has had her best year to date, winning numerous medals in the Devon county championships and gaining nine regional qualification times for the Western Counties championships.
Head coach Dave Clift said: “I am extremely pleased with Emily’s achievement. She has worked very hard over the last 12 months and proved what can be done with hard work, commitment and determination.”
