Tring Swimming Club coach Lisa Atkinson has been selected for one of the two Development Coach positions on an Elite Training Camp, organised and paid for by British Swimming.

The camp will provide international training experience for swimmers highlighted as having Olympic potential for Tokyo 2020, and is taking place in the planned Olympic venue.

This international opportunity gives Lisa the chance to learn from the very best and share her new experience and learning with Tring’s swimmers and coaching team.

Lisa is also head coach at Maxwell Swim Club, Aylesbury Vale’s performance club.

A Tring SC spokesman said: “We feel very lucky to have Linda as part of our coaching team at Tring. She is lead coach at Tring for our after school sessions on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons.

“Congratulations to Lisa for getting the recognition she deserves.”
