Ellie Faulkner has been an F-Teamer for almost 6 years and has had an incredible career! She has competed at two European Championships, two Commonwealth Games, and two Olympics winning medals for Great Britain at these events. This year Ellie won three bronze medals for Team England in the women's 400m Freestyle and the 4 x 100m and 4 x 200m Freestyle relays at the Commonwealth Games. At the European Championships in Glasgow Ellie bagged herself a gold medal in the women's 4 x 200m Freestyle relay finishing on a career high alongside F-Teamer Kat Greenslade.

Rosie Rudin made a splash in her swimming career. In 2016 she broke the Junior World Record in the women's 400m IM with a time of 4:39.01, which remains unbeaten today. Earlier this year Rosie swam as part of Team Britain at the Commonwealth Games, again competing in the 400m IM. Now she is taking a step back from the pool and getting ready for a new kind of challenge, starting her university studies at Sheffield Hallam this month.

We wish both girls the best of luck. Once an F-Teamer, always an F-teamer!
