2012 Olympic swimming hopeful to visit Chichester

OLYMPIC hopeful Gemma Spofforth takes centre stage at the Minerva Theatre in Chichester next Monday.

The Evening with Gemma will see one of Sussex’s big medal hopes for London 2012 talk about her swimming career.

The event is being hosted by chartered accountants and professional advisers Spofforths, and Mark Spofforth, Gemma’s father and a partner in the firm, will open the show.

Andrew Castle will interview Gemma, an ex-100m backstroke world champion and current world record holder, about her thoughts on London 2012.

During the second half, Olympian Mark Foster will talk about mentoring the British swimming team throughout the Beijing Olympics.
