Millbrook Academy would like to congratulate Isabella Weatherall for her amazing achievement of swimming Coniston Waters.

On 4 September 2015 Isabella swam the length of Coniston Waters, the 3rd longest lake in the England, 5.25 miles from end to end.

Isabella, at 13 years old is one of the youngest to complete this swim under the British Long Distance Swimming Association (BLDSA) recognition program. Not only is the distance a challenge but under the BLDSA rules she was not allowed to wear a wet suit, therefore had to endure the 16 degree water temperature in a normal swimming costume. Isabella completed the lake swim in 3 hours and 34 minutes in front crawl but still had enough in the tank for an impressive butterfly finish.

Congratulations to Isabella!
