Bishop’s Stortford College pupil and Olympian, Elinah Phillip smashed her Personal Best and the British Virgin Islands National Record by swimming 50m Butterfly in just 27.31 seconds during the FINA Swimming World Cup in Eindhoven earlier this week. Training hard throughout the summer and feeling confident before her swim, the FINA Swimming World Cup is part of Elinah’s preparation for the Youth Olympic Games to be held in Argentina later this month where Elinah has qualified to swim in in the 50m Freestyle and Butterfly and the 100m Freestyle. Elinah’s Eindhoven programme has included 4 events, the 50m Freestyle and Butterfly and the 100m Freestyle and Butterfly. Einah’s training is supported at the College by the Elite Sports Programme which offers bespoke strength and conditioning training tailored to her individual and the requirements of swimming. Where necessary, Elinah’s academic timetable is adjusted to accommodate training time and expert coaching. The College will be holding their Sixth Form Open Morning on Saturday 13th October at 10.15. Anyone interested in joining the Sixth Form in 2019 is warmly invited.
