Sarah, 18, from Derby was selected onto the DIS Gold Programme in June 2015 following exceptional performances at the British Swimming Championships, earning a Silver medal in the 100m Breaststroke (1.08.12) and a Bronze medal in the 50m Breaststroke (31.15).
These results catapulted Sarah into the spotlight, earning her first Great Britain call-up at the Tokyo Open in Japan. Sarah competed in the 50m and 100m breaststroke events, winning gold in the latter.
Sarah aims to maintain this form at the National Championships, which take place in August 2015, before pushing for more international call ups.
