Brechin Beavers’ swimmer Elle McMillan (10) recently competed in the Stirling autumn meet at the Peak Village and enjoyed success on the day.

Elle – pictured right – came home with gold medals in the 200m freestyle, 200m backstroke, 200m individual medley and 400m freestyle, as well as achieving personal best times.

She continues to show great improvement in her swimming, resulting in her achieving the qualifying times to be selected for the Scottish Swimming District Regional Programme (Bronze squad).

This programme is designed to develop and educate swimmers between 11-14 and to give them a greater understanding of competitive swimming. Swimmers are considered for selection for the stroke camps at Stirling University with the top swimmers and coaches in the country.

Elle has also been selected for the Scottish Swimming Midland District squad, which will allow her the opportunity to attend long course training sessions at the National Swimming Academy at Stirling University.
