Freya strikes gold

Ellesmere College’s Freya Anderson struck gold at this year’s British Swimming Championships winning the Women’s 200m Freestyle in a thrilling first night of competition. Adding a Bronze medal in the 50m Freestyle on Day 3, she then went on to retain her 100m Freestyle title.
With a time of 53.79 seconds – a fraction shy of her all-time best – Freya retained her 2018 title which made her a double British Champion in 2019. A remarkable performance from an 18-year old who has blossomed on the international sporting scene in the past 12 months.
Commenting on Freya’s performance, Alan Bircher, director of swimming at Ellesmere College, said, “Freya did well in retaining her 100m Freestyle title and then adding the 200m Freestyle title. The 200 is something we’ve been working hard on.”
