Harriet is one of just 90 English swimmers aged 15 or 16 to be selected at this level. All the swimmers were selected based on the Swim England long course rankings in each individual Olympic pool event and only times achieved between 22 March 2019 and 15 March 2020 were considered. The National Event Camps are the second step on the Swim England National Talent Pathway and cover technical and tactical development areas for specific racing events.
Last year Harriet attended a gruelling 4-day national training camp in December held at Millfield School. Because of the ongoing COVID-19 situation, this year the camp will be taking place online via Zoom on two days in November. It is also hoped that a pool activity day will take place in 2021 but this is dependent on the latest Government guidelines.
