SWIMMING: Wheatley gets call-up
1:00pm Thursday 12th September 2013 in Sport
Bicester teenager Caitlin Wheatley will compete in the 200m butterfly at Ponds Forge in Sheffield to represent England East at the Sainsbury’s 2013 School Games.
The Oxford High School pupil, 16, will have an opportunity to follow in the footsteps of her sporting heroes and experience what it is like to compete in a big event.
The four-day tournament event, which is supported by National Lottery funding from Sport England and delivered by the Youth Sport Trust, is a major multi-sport event for the nation’s talented athletes.
Wheatley, who swam at the Olympic Trials last year, said: “I am really pleased to have been selected. I never expected it at all. “I am really looking forward to the whole experience and I aim to go and try my hardest.”
