Sophie can even perform higher but this was still a fabulous grab of her in action when she was in a water depth of 2m.

It was taken at the National Synchronised Swimming Combo Cup - a new national recreational competition where the swimmers swim in teams, no individual sections.

Sophie and her base club Gateshead Synchro narrowly missed out on a medal by finishing fourth in the country.

Her coach has her in the highest age group she is able to swim in. Rather than swim in her age category of 12 and under she is swimming in the 15 and under category.

At the competitions later in the year Sophie will need to swim in her age group of 12 and under.
