Meet Georgie Lee...


and the World of International swimming...

Georgie's Profile >>

Georgina Lee is probably the most successful swimmer our Head Coach, Gerry Thain has coached at Camp Hill Edwardians in recent years. Born on the 14th August 1981 she started swimming with CHESC at the age of seven and attended her first Commonwealth Games in Kuala Lumpur at the age of sixteen in 1998.

She became an Olympian at the Sydney 2000 Olympics, narrowly missing the final of the 200m Butterfly, but setting a new British Record (2.10.33s) in the attempt. In 2004 she qualified for the Athens Olympics, setting two new British Records during the Olympic trials. She is Britain's most successful ladies butterfly swimmer and holds more Warwickshire County records than any other swimmer.

George is currently the British Record holder at both 100m and 200m Butterfly and achieved Gold (4 x 200m Freestyle Relay), Silver (200m Butterfly) & Bronze (4 x 100m Medley Relay) medals at the 2002 Commonwealth Games in Manchester.

She was voted runner-up in the Birmingham Sports Personality awards in 2001 and was awarded "Freshman of the Year" recognition in 2002 by the highly competitive swimming league in which her University competes. In 2003 she became the Western Athletic Conference Swimmer of the Year after posting seven All-American performances at the NCAA Championships.

Her training at Southern Methodist University in Texas and commitments with the British Swimming Team mean she is away for much of the year and is rarely able to train at the club. Nevertheless, she maintains a close interest in the Club and all it's swimmers, with Anne Lee keeping her informed of all Club and individual successes. George still trains with us when she is home and attends Club functions including the Christmas Party when her schedule allows.

George has her profile on the ASA Website and we are gathering together below an additional mixture of items that we hope will give our young swimmers an idea of both the path towards, and the life of, an International class swimmer...
