The season has just begun, and Annebel so far, keeps getting faster. If she is able to keep her training up the future of the season appears promising. She set a new record in her age group in the 10 and under, winning the 200m Backstroke, in a time of 3:00:89.
Annebel finaled in 7 events winning 1 gold, 2 silver and 1 bronze medal.
