A TEENAGER from Sonning Common has been chosen to represent England at synchronised swimming.
Madeleine Staples, 13, has been called into the national development squad after winning three gold medals in the 12 and under age category at the National Age Group Championships in November.
She came first in the solo section and in the duo section with her partner Rebecca Saunders and was part of the Reading Royals team that won the team category.
She then had to attend a selection event in Bristol, where all the swimmers had to perform a series of technical moves known as figures so the national team coaches could assess their flexibility, stamina, control, extension, speed, stability and uniform motion.
