Scottish Age Champs Success

4 April 2019

Aimee Willmott
Olympic F-Teamer Aimee Willmott joined fellow F-Teamers Katie Shanahan and Iona MacLeod at Scottish Age Champs.

Long course season is underway in the UK with the Scottish National Age Group Swimming Championships having taken place last week, from March 27-31. Our junior Scottish Funkita F-Teamers got racing and came home with an impressive haul, but with the British Swimming Championships around the corner there's no rest for them now.

Katie Shanahan
Katie dominated in her APEX Predator at the Age Group Champs.

Young gun Katie Shanahan dominated the 15 year old category, taking home a massive 12 medals in individual events. Her gold medal races were in the 100m, 200m, 400m and 800m Freestyle as well as in the 200m IM, 100m and 200m Backstroke, and 200m Breaststroke. Katie also broke the Scottish age group record in the 400m Freestyle with a time of 4:21.33.

At British Champs, Katie will be taking on some big names during her busy schedule. She'll be racing in the 100m, 200m, 400m and 800m Freestyle events, 100m and 200m Backstroke, 200m Breaststroke as well as going head to head with fellow F-Teamer and Olympian Aimee Willmott in the 200m and 400m IM.

Iona MacLeod was a Backstroke queen at the Scottish Age Champs, scoring silver medals in all the distances in the 16 year old category. Iona also took home the top prize in the 1500m Freestyle, proving her skill in the pool, no matter the distance.

Iona will be going the distance again at British Champs, taking on the 200m, 400m, 800m and 1500m Freestyle events. She'll also be joining her fellow F-Teamers in the 400m IM as well as taking on the 50m, 100m and 200m Backstroke.

Adding some star power to the event was dual Olympian Aimee Willmott. Aimee got in the pool for a heat swim in her signature event, 400m IM, before winning gold as part of the 4 x 100m Medley Relay.

Aimee will also be heading to British Champs later this month and will be taking on a big race schedule. In addition to her 200m and 400m IM events, Aimee is scheduled to race in the 200m Freestyle, Butterfly, Backstroke and Breaststroke.
