Will joins England Talent International Competition Team

An update from our Firs Dental sponsored swimmer, William Bell

As you may have seen from our previous blog articles and social media posts (if you aren't following us then find us on Facebook by clicking here) at Firs Dental we sponsor a young athlete called William Bell. William is a very talented Leicestershire swimmer who at just 16 is chasing an ambition and dream to wear the team GB jacket and represent his country at International swimming events. 

We recently received an update from his Mother, Louise, on his recent successes which we have included below.

Following on from a successful weekend competing for team East Midlands in Amiens, France, where he raced a gold in the open men's 1500 Freestyle and reached the A category finals in all 4 of his other events with another gold in the open men's 400 Individual Medley, William received some very exciting news this week.

We are delighted to report that he has been selected by Swim England to be part of the England Talent International Competition Team 2018. This is the first time he has progressed to Phase 3 of the Talent Pathway and he is so excited to be racing again in France, at the prestigious Marseille Open Mediterranee 2018 in April.

Thank you once again for the continued support from all at Firs Dental.

Congratulations William and keep up the great work.
