Droitwich Paralympic swimming star Redfern misses out on medals through illness

Craig Gibbons 18th May, 2017

DROITWICH’S very own Paralympic silver medalist missed out on a medal at the Para Swimming International Meet after falling ill.

Rebecca Redfern came fourth in a highly-competitive 100m breaststroke final held at Ponds Forge Arena.

The Worcester Swimming Club ace finished with a time of one minute 17.35 seconds, slower than her 1.13:81 which she set in the Paralympic Games last year.

Due to her sickness, Redfern was forced to miss the second half of the meet.

The 17-year-old will now turn her attentions to a three-week training programme in Arizona, USA, ahead of October’s World Championships in Mexico.

Redfern will have to miss out on two AS-Level examinations, which she will resit next year, as the camp clashes with her test dates.
