Hannah Pullinger, 13, of Chard and District Swimming Club, was selected to swim in the British Gas National - Inter County Championships, held at Sheffield on October 18.

She swam the 50m freestyle in the girls' 12/13 years individual medley relay, securing a time of 29.12, which was an impressive personal best.

Somerset finished sixth overall in Division One this year out of the 39 counties participating - an improvement on the 12th position they held previously.

Well done to Hannah who goes from strength to strength as a freestyle swimmer and her contribution to the Championships this year.
