SHETLAND swimmer Andrea Strachan has become the first swimmer in the history of Shetland swimming to qualify for the Olympic trials.
Andrea was swimming in Sheffield on Saturday when she finished the 100 metre breaststroke in the qualifying time of 1.11.73.
The trials for this summer’s London Olympic Games will take place at the New Aquatic Centre, in London, between the 3 and 10 March.
Andrea won four gold medals during last year’s international NatWest Islands Games, in the Isle of Wight.
