Summer Nationals

Shirley Pool swimmer Issy Turner (12) competed in her first Summer Nationals in Ponds Forge Sheffield, taking on the countries best young swimmers in the 200m backstroke.

Head Coach Matt Boyd-Wallis was delighted with her attitude,

” She went out a bit fast (34.6 at 50m 1.12 at 100m) and paid the price on the last 100. But she is very positive and knows what to do next time. Sometimes it can be hard to keep focus and hold the adrenaline back. Issy is very positive and will be back next year”
