County swimmer Leila

Well done to swimmer Leila who has been selected for the Lancashire Talent Camp. Year 7 pupil Leila started having swimming lessons as normal and an instructor asked if she would like to join Wigan Wasps aged eight-years-old. She now mainly trains and competes with Wigan BEST, around six times a week (that’s about seven hours!) and has competed at county and regional level. Leila, whose favourite stroke is backstroke, will hopefully go to Lancashire Championships in January 2019 – she is currently competing this weekend and throughout December to secure the times to qualify for the championships. Good luck Leila!
