Alice Dearing is an elite swimmer at the Royal Wolverhampton School, where she is known as the freestyle queen. She has certainly lived up to this and having been selected as part of the 24 elite junior swimmers to compete as the British Gas GBR Swimming Team in the 2013 European Junior Championships, took gold in the 5km race. This opportunity will certainly have given her valuable experience for the future as well as the chance to make the team for Rio 2016.
