Boston Amateur Swimming Club’s Kieva Clegg claimed a medal and three best times at the Scottish Nationals.

The youngster made the journey up to Edinburgh to compete in the Scottish Summer Meet, this season’s national championships for swimmers registered as Scottish and who had achieved the qualifying times required.

The Friday saw the 13-year-old compete in the 14-years and under 100m breaststroke, followed by her favourite event, the 200m butterfly later in the afternoon.

Kieva swam well in the 100m breaststroke, achieving a personal best time.

After a short rest it was time for to 200m butterfly.

Kieva swam superbly, achieving a good PB and finishing in the bronze medal position.

The following day Kieva competd in the 200m breaststroke event.

Again a good swim saw her break the three-minute barrier for the first time for this event, finishing in fifth position.

Kieva, who was registered as Scottish earlier this year, as her father is Scottish, has been swimming competitively since she was nine, coached by Boston’s Ian Wells.

The club is now on its summer break until September, when they will begin training hard for several competitions, including their own Open Meet hosted at Grantham in November.
