Amazing GOLD for Louise Fiddes @Citi Para Swimming World Series 2024

  • February 13, 2024

Louise was at Citi Para Swimming World Series 2024 in Aberdeen between 1st and 4th Fev 2024. She swam in 200IM, 100Breast and 200Free.

Louise picked up gold this time after her 2023 world championship bronze medallist. Louise led the charge from the gun under early pressure from Maskill on her shoulder – however a late surge from Japan’s Kinoshita split the pair as they came into the touch.

Speaking on her gold medal swim, Fiddes said: “I’m pretty happy, I’d of liked to have gone a smidge faster but I mean who doesn’t and I’m happy for where I am in the season. It was good fun to race Poppy and you know she was right there the whole way – I enjoy the thrill of a race!”

“The 100m Breaststroke is definitely still number one in my mind but this is an event I enjoy and it just seems to go quite well so it’s still something I put good time into in training.”
