Ciara Mckenna Makes GB Team European Down-Syndrome Championships

Berkhamsted swimmer and Judo player, Ciara Mckenna is looking forward to her trip to Sardinia later in September to represent GB in the European Down-Syndrome swimming championships.

As part of the lead up to this major meet she also attended a very successful week long swim camp with the Down Syndrome GB squad in Newcastle. She had the opportunity to train at the Royal Grammar School, with morning and afternoon pool sessions as well as physio, psychology and tailored land training sessions.

The swimmers also received visits from local top swimmers in support of their efforts and thse of their volunteer coaching team.

Ciara is training hard in preparation for the Down Syndrome European Championships in Sardinia 15-22 September. She is very excited to be representing her country at these championships.
