Please welcome our newest AMANZI Girl, Olympic swimmer, Jessica Lloyd!
At only 16 years old, Jessica qualified for the 2012 London Olympics, making her the youngest member on the Great Britain Olympic team. Even at her first Olympics, Jess only narrowly missed out on a medal, when her relay team finished 5th in the 4x100m freestyle relay.
She then backed up her impressive performance in London, qualifying for the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games. Having learnt from her experiences at the London Olympics, Jess came home with two medals, silver in the 4x100m Freestyle relay and bronze in the 4x200m Freestyle relay.
Now with less than a year to go until the 2016 Olympics in Rio, Jess is ready to race and hoping to qualify for the 100m Freestyle to continue on her path towards one day becoming world champion.
We hope to be cheering you on at Rio next year and every step along the way!
