RGF Grantee, Lucy, Impresses in Argentina

Back in August we shared Lucy’s video with you, explaining that, with support from the RGFshe was about to represent GB at the 6th World Deaf Swimming Championship in Argentina.

Well, she did us proud! We’ll leave Lucy to tell us all about it. She told us: “I’m now back from Buenos Aires, and I’m happy to announce the following results from my participation in the 6th World Deaf Swimming Championships:

(14th August) 100 fly – PB: 1:12.00, 11th

(16th August) 50 back – PB: 35.69, 13th

(17th August) 200 fly – SB: 2:44.54, 6th

(18th August) 50 fly – SB: 32.54, 16th

PB = Personal best; SB = season best.

“I also made the final in the 200m Butterfly, where I maintained my 6th position and further dropped my time from the preliminaries. Overall, I am very happy with my results, especially after a challenging year, and I’m looking forwards to returning to training to improve some more. Thank you again for RGF’s support for this competition!”

RGF trustee, David Cant said: “We are so proud of Lucy, not only her competitive spirit and performance levels, but also the fact that she stays in regular touch updating us on her progress and we really appreciate that – well done, Lucy!”
