We are delighted to announce that City of Preston Aquatics now has two GB synchronised swimmers – Daisy Rushton and Rhea Howard. The girls had already undertaken a gruelling set of prerequisite skills which had to be assessed at club level in order to meet the requirements to trial, which whittled down the number of candidates to 23 from across the country. Trials then took place on Saturday at Hengrove Pool in Bristol following which the girls were successful, resulting in them being offered places on the GB squad.
Congratulations to both girls, of whom CoPA is justifiably proud. Now the hard work really starts!
