When asked how she manages her training schedule and A Level studies, Annabel commented, “One of the reasons I joined the College was for their Elite Sports Programme which supports my training schedule and my studies with a balanced timetable. The facilities at the College, especially the swimming pool and the gym, are superb, which means that I don’t have to travel far and can better manage my time.”
