She said: “I've won the BAGCAT for the past two years so to win again is great.
“It has an added bonus this year in that the BAGCAT winners receive a contribution from Kellogg's, which goes towards training fees. It's nice to be recognised like this for our performances.”
Bruce Learner, Corporate Social Responsibility Manager at Kellogg's, said: “Kellogg's have been enthusiastic sponsors of swimming for over 10 years in the UK and we're delighted to support these talented youngsters as they develop and hopefully become the swimming stars of the future.”
