Bath and North East Somerset GLL Sport Foundation athlete Stephanie Millward MBE has won two gold medals and broken a World Record.

Stephanie, who received an Ambassador Award from the GLL Sport Foundation earlier this year, was selected to swim again for GB at the Para Swimming World Championships 2019 at the Aquatic Centre in London last month. She had a brilliant competition coming home with two gold medals as part of the relay teams (4 x 100 freestyle and 4 x 100 medley relay) and in the medley relay smashed the World Record by nine seconds.

Steph said "I felt so amazing to be on the Team and it has given me the strength and the courage to aim high for Tokyo 2020.

"The GLL donation has made such a difference – not least, allowing me to concentrate totally on the World Championships rather than worrying about just getting there! Naturally, having won 2 Golds, my focus has turned to next year.  I know I am capable of doing amazing things at Tokyo 2020."

The GLL Sport Foundation funds over 100 local talented athletes who live and train in Bath and North East Somerset to help them reach their potential.
