Latham nominated for Sports Award

Katie Latham has been nominated for the young sports star of the year award at Kent Regional News and Media’s Sports Award 2012.

The Dover Express have recognised Katie’s incredible year which has seen her perform at the London 2012 Olympic Aquatic Centre and they have put her forward for the award.

Sports Write Jack Wilson said “Katie has done remarkably and it shows that if you put in the hard work in you get the rewards. She trains so hard at Thanet Swim Club. Competition will be strong for this award but Katie has as good a chance as anyone as her achievements have been so great”.

Katie, 15, from Walmer swims for Thanet under Head Coach David Whorlow and attends Sir Roger Manwoods School in Sandwich.

She shone at the UK School Games last month at the Olympic Aquatic Centree where she represented East England in 5 events. Katie helped East England to a bronze medal in the relay with a fine swim. Before that she claimed 2 gold medals at the south-east Regional Championships in the 50m Backstroke in a new Record and the 50m Freestyle.

Her twim sister Alice is also lightning quick swimmer who herseld has recorded times of national standard.
