My name is Tiegan Child and I swim. I have recently finished my GCSEs at Chislehurst and Sidcup Grammar School and want to further my education by doing my A levels. I started swimming for a club at the age of 7, following on from lessons when I was younger and have loved it ever since. Currently I swim for Beckenham Swimming Club and have been swimming there for 4 years. I am grateful for everyone who has helped me in my journey so far in swimming. My training is predominately pool based due to me being a distance swimmer so I need a high level of cardiovascular and muscular endurance to ensure I can maintain my splits throughout races. Outside of the pool, I like spending time with my family and walking my dog. In the future, I would like to use my knowledge of swimming and sport as a whole in order to help people.
Coming third in the final of the 100m freestyle at Nationals in 2016. I went into the race with nothing to lose and just tried my hardest. I’d not been at Beckenham long and I’ll always remember seeing my team mates cheering for me before and after which meant a lot.
Failing to make the final for the 200m at British Nationals after being seeded 6th going in.
