A LARGS swimming starlet is hoping to make waves once more after returning to competitive action.

Teenager Abby Kane was participating in the Para Swimming World Series Inc. British Para-Swimming Meet.
The 50m freestyle is an opportunity to put down times ahead of the Commonwealth Games, with the World Ranking database being used to allocate the top seven places for the event.
Abby, who studies at the University of Stirling, finished 11th overall in the World Series final with a time of 30.97 (638 points). 
The 18-year-old said: “I’m a lot happier with this performance over that of this morning and I’m happy to be back in the 30 mark. 
“It shows improvement and some progress in my training. 
“It’s been nice to compete with my coach, we’ve not had many opportunities to do that yet and I feel I’m definitely showing growth in my swimming and in myself.”
Speaking about the change of focus from backstroke to freestyle, Abby said: “This year there is more of a focus on the freestyle because of the Commonwealth Games and I will let my backstroke rest for a while. 
“I think with my backstroke I did peak at a young age and in the past couple of years I’ve had a lot of changes, changes in my body and moving away from home. 
“Taking a break from backstroke will help my motivation and I won’t get down in the dumps if I don’t swim well. 
“And when I do come back to it, I can just start from scratch and develop it again.”
The former Largs Academy pupil has Stargardt disease, a condition leading to progressive vision deterioration.
In her first Paralympics, the 2016 Summer Paralympics in Rio de Janeiro, the teen won the silver medal in the 100m backstroke S13 event.
She was the youngest member of ParalympicsGB at the 2016 Paralympics.
