Recently Fayina (10C2) competed in the British Down Syndrome Swimming Championships at Crawley. A daunting prospect potentially, being her first competitive event against girls from all over Britain and watched by hundreds of spectators. She surpassed all expectations, being the second youngest competitor in attendance. In the Junior category (16 and under), she won two silver medals for 50m backstroke and 100m individual medley (her backstroke time was 9th fastest across all age groups!) She also won awards for fastest times for her freestyle and butterfly over 25m.
Congratulations Fayina on an outstanding achievement.
