Grace Cruickshank, who trains at Thornbury Leisure Centre, has achieved a place in the GB Age Group Synchronised Swimming Squad and hopes to soon compete internationally.
Grace trained at the Thornbury Leisure Centre pool for her first solo synchronised swim, before coming 7th in the National Championships. She said “I would like to thank the staff and manager at Thornbury for providing me with the pool time to practice my figures and solo routine”.
Leisure Centre Manager, Andy Robinson said: “Grace is a fantastic athlete and here at the leisure centre we are delighted to do all we can to support her. Through hard work and dedication to her training she has achieved great things - she is a real inspiration.”
