CUPAR swimmer Kirsty Simpson has been in action recently, clocking some impressive times at championships up and down the country.

Kirsty (16) competed in the Scottish Gas National Open Championships at the Royal Commonwealth Pool in Edinburgh, where she set a new Scottish age group record for the 50m backstroke.

Her time of 30.15s earned her a silver medal in the event, to add to the silver she picked up in the 100m backstroke.

HIGHLIGHT

Bell Baxter High School pupil Kirsty also achieved high placings in the 50m, 100m and 200m freestyle.

She finished as top junior over 50m.

In the British Gas ASA National Youth Championships in Sheffield, Kirsty competed in a number of events, the highlight being a seventh-place finish in the 100m backstroke.

Kirsty would like to thank local business Kettle Produce, which has awarded her £125 towards training costs.
