CUPAR swimmer Kirsty Simpson (pictured above) put in two excellent performances in the Olympic qualifiers at the London Aquatics Centre.

Kirsty (15) set a new personal best in the 100m backstroke and came close to beating her own quickest time in the 200m event.

Although she missed out on qualification, Kirsty was among the top performers for her age group and has set her sights on making the Scottish squad for the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
