  • The team competed in Glasgow 23-25 October
  • Samantha came 25th out of 68 on technical ability
  • Synchronised Swimming is a Summer Olympics Sport
  • It demands advanced water skills, and requires great strength, endurance, flexibility, grace, artistry and precise timing, as well as exceptional breath control when upside down underwater

“The dedication Samantha shows to Synchronised Swimming is astonishing, she travels to South Leeds Stadium before school and then after school almost every day of the week. Maintaining this level of commitment is testament to the strong character she is.”
— Mr Wilkes, Year 10 Student Progress Leader
