"A few of my friends are heading across on hockey scholarships next year. It’ll be interesting to see the level of school hockey being played.”

And Lili added: “This swimmimg season has gone well and I’m pleased with the progress I’ve made, but I still have much to learn.

"Next year, I’d like to aim for the British Championships at the end of July. Hopefully, if I train hard enough, my improved times might get me there.”
