A talented Cramlington youngster has picked up four medals in a national swimming competition.

Twelve-year-old Adam Wilson picked up four medals at the British Gas Age Group Nationals competition, taking home a bronze in the 1500m freestyle, and silver in the 400m individual medley, butterfly and backstroke.

He also achieved the qualifying times for the nationals for 1500m freestyle and 200m fly and back.

His mum Judith said: “His first race was the 200m fly, breaking his own personal best by three seconds and breaking Tynemouth ASC club record.

“He then swam the 1500m freestyle knocking another six seconds off his personal time, and came 20th in the country.”

Cramlington Junior Learning Village pupil Adam came ninth in the country overall for the 200m fly.

“We are so proud of him, this could not be possible without the dedication of Adam himself, early morning and missing time with friends from school,” added Mrs Wilson.

“Also his coach Andy Thirlwell has been an excellent role model and supported Adam all year as well as Cramlington Junior Learning Village.

“They have been fantastic supporting Adam throughout the year and he even won an outstanding achievements award for his swimming.

“This was a real moral boost for Adam before going to the competition knowing the school and staff are there supporting him and they all have been a brilliant.”
