Shirley Junior schoolgirl, Verity Telford started swimming at Shirley Pool when she was just 3 years old.
Now nine years old and a member of the Dolphins Swim Academy, Verity is an accomplished swimmer. Having learned all the strokes and worked up to her Gold award Verity completed her 2,000m badge in February 2015. This year Verity set out to beat this personal record and on our February crash course set herself the goal of the 4,000m award.
Amazingly, Verity strolled through the 160 length challenge in just 1 hour 50 minutes.
At the same time as doing this marathon swim Verity completed her Honors award.
Verity is our newest star swimmer!
