The 17-year-old swimmer, from South Wingfield and a student at Highfields School, is a member of the Derventio eXcel squad and on the Derbyshire Institute of Sport programme, winning a bronze medal in the 200m butterfly at the British Summer National Championships.

Jamie says: "This summer, I won a bronze medal in the 200m butterfly at British Championships for the 17/18 year age group and also made the final for the 100m butterfly.

"I won my event at the national county team championship, scoring 20 points for Derbyshire. I have qualified for six events at short course nationals in December 2015.

"This year I aim to win my age at British Championships, and therefore be selected to represent Great Britain at the European Junior Championships in Hungary.

"In 2018, I want to be called up to swim for England at the Commonwealth Games, as this would be a great reflection of my efforts.

This ICON bursary will help me on my way to achieving these goals. The money will ensure that I can get to all the sessions, and be able to use supplements to aid my development in both the gym and the pool."
