Miles ahead of the rest

Abigail Miles has continued to impress with her sporting achievements both inside and out of Kirk Balk Academy. Abigail, already the North East and Yorkshire champion, recently competed in Edinburgh, against athletes from around the country in order to achieve further recognition nationally.

Abigail performed phenomenally achieving a 'Personal Best' in all three races she competed in and narrowly missed out on qualifying for the Junior Finals by 100th of a second! This is an incredible achievement considering she was one of the youngest competitors! She clearly has a promising future ahead of her.

Abigail, who currently swims 8 times a week on top of her academic studies, is now looking to qualify for the European Juniors in order to achieve international success. Regardless of her success, Kirk Balk is immensely proud of Abigail's dedication to swimming and she is truly an inspiration for future generations of enthusiastic athletes.
