Taylor has completed a very successful week at the Commonwealth Games by
winning gold in the 100m Women’s Breaststroke Final in a National and
Commonwealth Record Time of 1:06.35. She then won Silver in the Women’s 4 X 100
m Medley Relay Final.
is just 18 years old was born in Sheffield and learnt to swim there before
moving to Doncaster where she was a member of Armthorpe Swimming Club and
Doncaster DARTES for four years until she moved to Harrogate and swam out of
Leeds. At Armthorpe we all knew she was going to be a very good breaststroke
swimmer but achieving this level of success is really brilliant. At Armthorpe and DARTES we might have only
played a small part in Sophie’s overall development into a topflight swimmer
but we are very proud of our Commonwealth Champion.
