SWIMMING: South Lincs starlet Sophie in gold rush

Have your say

SOUTH Lincs Swimming Club ace Sophie Taylor had a memorable day at the Disability Sport England Junior National Championships in Sheffield.

The Spalding star won gold in all her individual events for the S7 category and a silver and bronze in the team relays, where she represented the East Midlands team.

Taylor was particularly pleased to have gained personal best times in the 100m breast stroke and 50m front crawl races.

She is hopeful that she can continue to improve on her times now, particularly as the club has a new coach, Callum Lawson, who started with South Lincs at the beginning of March.

Sophie is now looking forward to taking part in the British International Disability Championships in Sheffield, which will incorporate the final selection trials for London 2012.
