Molly Renshaw wins Derbyshire Young Sports Woman of the Year 2012!

Derventio eXcel swimmer Molly Renshaw last night attended  the Derbyshire Sports Awards evening to celebrate the achievements of local athletes. 

The Great Britian International attended the awards ceremony at the Round House in Derby and was pleased to be awarded the Derbyshire Young Sports Woman of the Year 2012.  Molly is pictured above collecting her award off Derby CC Cllr Paul Bayliss.

Molly says "It was a great evening, and being selected as one of the athletes to be honoured in the evening was really nice.  I am really proud to have won the award and want to continue making Derbyshire proud."

Molly who is 16 years of age has had an amazing year breaking British Age Group and Junior Records multiple times in her favourite 200m Breaststroke, and culmunated in winning GOLD at the European Junior Championships in Antwerp in July. 

Molly has also been selected onto the World Class Swimming Programme and the Advanced Apprenticeship in Sporting Excellence for 2012 onwards.

Molly is due to jet off to Chartes in France next week for her second International swim in the GB Senior team at the European Short Course Championships.

Well Done Molly!!!
