Swimming: Amy gears up for games

Amy Harper: Five freestyle gold medals.

NINETEEN year old Amy Harper from Gulberwick enjoyed an outstanding weekend winning five gold medals at the Scottish Amateur Swimming Association’s East District Open Championship in Glasgow.

Harper achieved three personal best times to win gold in the 50m freestyle, the 100m freestyle and the 400m freestyle on Saturday.

On Sunday the gold rush continued with gold in both the 200m and 800m freestyle races.

Highlight of the weekend was the 50m freestyle in which Harper’s time of 27.41 seconds qualified her to take part in the British Gas ASA National Championships in Sheffield in June.

Later that month she will be on of 163 swimmers competing in the Island Games in the Isle of Wight, where she will be in a strong position to be one of Shetland’s medal winners.
