Corrie Scott Swimming

In sport, and in life, it’s not always going to go your way but my personal best is making sure that I give 100% every day even in the hard times.

About me

Sport has given me so many things; confidence, amazing friends, the ability to travel to some amazing places and so much joy and fun!

I took up swimming aged seven after my brother joined the local swimming club, I wanted to be just like my brother at that age. I love being in the water, but when I first started, I was never the best. I realised that the harder I worked, the better I got. This has been my mindset ever since, 'hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard.'
