Valentina has been recognised and listed as a blue status in the 2019 Bioisland Australian Junior Excellence Program. It’s crazy to think that with just over a years worth of competitive swimming, she has been recognised for her times.
The Junior Excellence Program was established in 2007 to reward, recognise and incentivise junior swimmers who qualify at gold, silver, bronze or blue status depending on their swim times/performance during the season.
Valentina has been coming home after every swim meet with Personal Best Times for her age group. She currently trains 3 days a week in water, 1 day per week with a personal trainer to work on her core muscles outside of the water and dances 2 days a week for enjoyment.
Earlier in the year Valentina also helped raise much needed money and taking part in the Starlight Foundation Superswim, raising $200 and swimming 60kms in a month.
Congratulation Valentina on your acheivement!
