Local Baby Swim Teacher Makes Waves at the London 2016 LEN European Masters Championships

A local mum and Turtle Tots baby swim teacher dipped her toe into new waters, during the weekend of 28th and 29th May, as she competed at the London 2016 LEN European Masters Championships, alongside nine other local women in the synchronised swimming free combination team category.

It had been almost 20 years since Rachel Davies last competed and she had been training hard since the start of 2016 when she challenged herself to relive her childhood sport - and win the European Masters.

The local owner of award-winning baby swim programme Turtle Tots Surrey, Rachel spends most of her days in the pool coaching babies and toddlers to build confidence in the water, but in May the focus was on her and her team mates as she used her final hours to perfect her technique ahead of the competition at the London Olympic Pool.

Rachel explained:
"I used to compete in synchronised swimming as a teenager but that was 20 years ago. When the opportunity came up to compete again, I jumped at it; after all I’ve been teaching babies to swim since 2008 so there hasn’t been a week when I haven’t been in a swimming pool. Water is in my blood and this is a personal challenge for me to revive my childhood passion and see what I can achieve."

Rachel, who has also worked with the GB synchronised swimming team in the past as a lifestyle and performance coach, competed alongside nine other women from the local area, which made up the rest of the combination team.

Rachel continued:
"I have such strong, happy memories of being involved in synchro as a sport that I wanted to challenge myself again. The experience of swimming at the London Olympic Pool will be awesome albeit a tough competition, and if we can come back with a medal at the end of it, even better."
