Maisie: National Performance Programme!

CONGRATULATIONS to Maisie Macartney on her selection for the Swim England Performance Squad for 2018/19. Only 19 swimmers that have been identified as “potential international stars of the future” have been selected!
This is really well deserved; Maisie has represented GB for 3 consecutive years in Open Water, culminating in her fantastic 4th place finish at the World Junior Open Water Championships this summer.
Everyone in the club is really proud of you Maisie!
