Lily recently competed at the “ASA Central Zonal Championships” in Corby, where she won Gold in the Womens 15 and Over 200m Butterfly, Bronze in the 100m Butterfly and Bronze in the 50m Butterfly. This Gold medal is Lily’s best to date due to the level of the Zonal championships.
Lily has also been trying to achieve, before the closing date of 9th February, the 200m Butterfly qualifying time for the 2014 Commonwealth Games trials, being held at Glasgow in April. Lily came so very close being just 0.06 off the time. Lily needed a time of 2.19.35 and she swam a time of 2.19.41.
The weekend of 8th & 9th February, Lily competed in Sheffield where she swam 3 events. In the 200m individual Medley, Lily swam faster than the National Championships qualifying time and has now added that to her other 2 events, 200m and 100m Butterfly that she will be competing in at the National Championships in August at Sheffield.
Shortly, the qualifying times for the British Gas International Meet will be released and one of Lily’s goal is to qualify and compete in this.
