Swimming winnerOver the last few weeks, 13 year old Zoe Cawsey has picked up a good crop of medals for swimming. Zoe, who is a pupil at the Royal Alexandra and Albert School, has been competing in various swimming competitions, and has had considerable success.
Zoe is a member of Redhill and Reigate Swimming Club and recently competed in the club championships. She won gold medals for her age group for the 200m individual medley and the 50m backstroke. She also won a cup in the 400m individual medley event. These wins followed on from a strong performance at the Atlantis Swimming Club Open Meet earlier this year. Zoe came 6th overall out of 220 girls from all over the South East of England.
Zoe said “I train four times a week and I am in the Youth Squad for my club. I hope to represent Surrey next year and my long term ambition is to swim in the Olympics."
PE teacher Paul Washer said “Zoe is an excellent sportswoman. She performs highly in most sports but excels in the pool. During PE swimming lessons she is often given completely different tasks from other pupils as she is way above the level we would expect from a Year 8. I am delighted that she is being rewarded for all of her hard work and training and I am sure she is only going to get better.”
