Naomi Crowder, aged 77, of Westminster Close, Lodge Moor, has been crowned Senior Swimmer of the Year.
The oldest member of the City of Sheffield Masters Squad, she said: “My daughter was the one who got me swimming again.
“She entered me into the New Zealand Masters Games when I was 70 and since then I haven’t looked back. I just love being in the water - I love the friendships of the people that I swim with.
Naomi, a 2012 ‘Games Maker’ who hopes to volunteer at the 2014 Commonwealth Games, travelled to Birmingham for the 2013 Kellogg’s ASA Swimtastic Awards.
