AN international swimmer will be mixing studies with sport when she speaks about her achievements at Teesside University.
As Middlesbrough’s most successful swimmer since Jack Hatfield a century ago, Aimee Willmott has her sights set firmly on competing in the Rio Olympics in 2016.
The 20-year-old, who is studying BSc (Hons) Sport and Exercise (Coaching Science) at her hometown university, has already represented Great Britain at both the London 2012 Games and World Championships.
She will share her experiences during a free ‘audience with’ event, taking place at its Centuria Building from 6pm to 7pm on Tuesday, September 24.
A member of Middlesbrough Amateur Swimming Club (MASC) since the age of eight, she is also part of Teesside University’s elite athlete scheme, which offers specialist support, coaching and mentoring to athletes of international calibre.
Matt Wright, Sports Development Officer (Elite Sport) at Teesside University, added: “Aimee has achieved an incredible amount of international success and the University is proud to be able to play a part in that.
"This event is a great opportunity for people to hear about what it takes to become an international athlete and what support is in place.”
