Maisie selected for the WORLD Junior Open Water Champs!

Massive CONGRATULATIONS to Maisie Macartney on her selection to represent GB at the WORLD Junior Open Water Champs in Israel in September.  Maisie’s selection was based on her sterling performance in the 7.5km race at the European Junior Open Water Champs in Malta on the 13th July.  During this race Maisie battled through multiple jelly fish stings to the face to maintain a place in the leading pack. With only 800m to go she was subject to a fierce kick in the head which resulted in a brave 10th place finish.  Maisie was also scheduled to swim in the 19/U mixed relay, but the race was cancelled due to high winds causing unsafe racing conditions.  This is Maisie’s 3rd consecutive summer racing with the GB junior open water team – she’s going from strength to strength.
