Largs teen swimmer Abby Kane is hoping to continue her successful streak as she heads to Scandinavia for her latest championship.
The 14 year old features in the world para swimming world series squad which was recently announced.
Abby is one of 18 athletes who will head to Copenhagen next month to compete in the 2018 World Para Swimming World Series.
The squad features a mixture of experienced swimmers, with some emerging talent - giving many the opportunity to hone their skills before heading off to the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games in April.
It is the first event in the 2018 WPS World Series, which will come to Ponds Forge Sheffield later in the year giving British para-swimmers the opportunity to compete in front of a home crowd.
Craig Nicholson, Team Leader, said: “We have a strong team heading to Copenhagen in what is set to be a busy year for our para-swimmers. Each of our athletes will be working to their own processes, whether developing international competition skills or working on specific racing strategies. It is great the World Series will be coming to Sheffield this year and our swimmers will be given the opportunity to compete in front of British fans.”
Abby will be looking forward to the Danish experience, and hoping to continue her excellent form which has seen her do so well in recent years.
Back in December, the Largs Academy pupil broke the S13 World Record for 100m backstroke. Abby recorded an impressive 1:09.50 at National Para Swimming Championships held at Manchester Aquatics Centre.
The teen, who has Stargardt disease - a condition that leads to progressive vision deterioration - started swimming when she was seven for North Ayrshire Amateur Swimming Club, and now features for Ren96.
In 2014, Abby showed she had nerves of steel against the best in the world as she set a paralympics record in the qualifying heats with a 1:09:09 swim in the qualifying heat to set a Paralympics record, and went on to record silver at Rio.
