A FORMER Ellesmere College swimmer is setting her sights on the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo.

Freya Anderson has had an exceptional 2019, winning two golds and a bronze at the British championships in Glasgow, as well as picking up a bronze medal at the world championships in Gwangju.

The 18-year-old is now hoping to carry her success to the pinnacle of the sport at the Olympic Games for the first time.

She has already got plenty of experience on the international stage after competing across the world over the past two years.

The Ellesmere Titans swimmer spoke in a recent interview about how she has been getting herself through tough training sessions with the Games moving closer.

Speaking to Swimming.org, she said: “Training is pretty tough at the moment, but it’s great having a goal to work towards. If you’re struggling in a set, you tell yourself ‘Come on, Freya – the Olympics are less than 300 days away, just keep working!’

“I’m feeling a real mixture of nerves and excitement, but I’ve got a fair bit of experience now so I should be in top condition and ready to perform when we get to Tokyo.”

The games get underway in Tokyo on Friday, July 24 2020.
