Following on from the World Rescue Lifesaving competition in September this year, Pershore High School student, Amy Weston (aged 15 from Flyford Flavell) returned to the Pieter Van Den Hoogenband National Swimming Pool in Eindhoven, Holland to compete as part of the GB Performance Squad for the The Orange Cup.
It is the first time that Amy has represented the GB Performance team on the international stage and competed against swimmers from the national teams of Italy, Germany, Holland, Canada and South Africa.
Amy took part in the 200m obstacle swim, 50m manikin carry, 100m manikin tow with fins, 100m rescue medley and 200m super lifesaver in the 15-18 year olds, achieving a personal best in the latter two. She was also part of the GB Junior Girls relay team.
Amy said: “It was a very proud moment for me and it is great meeting people from around the world who have the passion for lifesaving that I do”.
