Stornoway swimmer Kara Hanlon is continuing on form with a stunning clutch of three gold medals at this weekend’s Scottish Open National Swimming Championships in Aberdeen.

22-year-old Kara, who now swims with the Edinburgh University team, took gold in the women’s 50m breaststroke this afternoon (Sunday 30th June) to add to a gold in the women’s 100m breaststroke on Friday and another in the 200m breaststroke on Saturday.

It’s an excellent show of form for the Western Isles Island Games Team, as Kara will be attending her 5th NatWest International Island Games when the squad heads out to Gibraltar on Saturday.

She’ll be showing the way for WIIGA’s latest swimming debutants - Mairi Maclennan (15) and Sophie Smith (14).
