Aiming for Tokyo in 2020

In April, Kate (Year 10 at the Redland site) won the Senior National Synchronised Swimming Championships in Nottingham in both the individual event (Solo) and the partners’ event (Duet). Since then, Kate and her partner Izzy have been selected to represent GB at the Junior European Championships in Serbia (June) and the World Senior Swimming Championships in Hungary (July). Kate has also been selected to swim the solo event at both competitions.

She leaves for a two-week training camp in Italy ahead of the World Championships on Monday 3 July. Her ultimate aim, at this stage, is to be selected for Tokyo 2020. 

Maria Shortman, lead coach of City of Bristol Aquatics 'Synchro' explained how the talented young duo's careers have progressed. "Kate and Izzy were first selected to compete as a duet for England when they were 12 years old. They have been competing internationally for four years. They are the youngest duet pair in many years and we hope there are promising years to come for this talented and committed pairing."

Miss Zoe Leach, Head of PE at Redland added, “Kate’s natural ability in water, combined with maturity and a real determination to succeed, has taken her on to the international stage. We are all extremely proud of her and wish here every success in the Junior European Championships in June and the World Championships in July.”
