Essex County Masters Championships (25m) 13 September 2014

This was a Masters able-bodied event, held at Southend Leisure & Tennis Centre Southend-on-Sea
Jo-Jo had not competed for a few years after becoming extremely disheartened and disappointed in her swimming classification status in relation to both the 2008 & 2012 Paralympic Games (long story short). She found herself missing the rush of competition so she started training again over the Summer
(She uses the word training rather loosely) she entered a counties competition on a whim.
Jo-Jo was amazing!
She came away with TWO GOLDS & A BRONZE in her age group (18-24) at an
400m Freestyle 1st
100m Butterfly 1st
100m Individual Medley 3rd
100m Freestyle 4th
Her times were not a patch on what they used to be, but nevertheless
she is extremely happy that she competed for fun and has regained her love for the sport!
