Summer's best call yet


Elite swimmer Summer Best has been called up to represent Wales in the Intercounties Swimming Gala in Sheffield in October.

The Year 11 pupil says she's so proud to be part of the Welsh National Squad.

Last year in the Welsh Open national swimming gala, in Swansea. The then 14-year-old achieved five personal bests and made three finals in which she gained three medals-two silvers and a bronze, in the 200m, 100m and 50m breaststroke.

Summer’s results put her third in Wales for breaststroke and she joined the Welsh national skill squad.


She is now 15th in Britain for 100m breaststroke. The top 16 in Britain are recognised by British Swimming as elite.

Summer’s mother Elsa is head coach at the swimming club at Llandudno’s swimming pool.

The Year 11 student who will be taking her GCSEs this school year, trains seven times a week in Llandudno pool, getting up 5.30am five mornings a week.

Although she may not be so keen on the training, she loves competing and has her sights on perhaps becoming a professional swimmer.

Her hero is the British swimmer Adam Peaty, who specialises in breaststroke.
