Ellie Sibbald-Perkins trains with the City of Birmingham Swimming Club Senior squad. Her main stroke is breaststroke but she also performs well in the individual medley events.
Ellie won her first national medal in the 400m Individual medley in 2018, with a bronze in the 14yrs age group at the English summer nationals. She also had top ten finishes in the British summer nationals for 100m and 200m breaststroke.
In 2019, Ellie won the trial for the European Youth Olympic Festival (EYOF) at the British Championships in Glasgow, in the 200m breaststroke. Ellie achieved her first international call up as she was selected to swim for Team GB at EYOF in Baku, Azerbaijan.
"It was a real honour to represent my country and a fantastic experience to compete overseas."
This season Ellie is aiming to get to the European Junior Championships 2020 and the support from Jowe and Swim Path will hopefully help her on her way!
