SWIMMER Beth Johnston put in a golden performance at the Scottish Disability Junior Championships.

SWIMMER Beth Johnston

The talented 11-year-old - who received a £200 grant from the Rowan Boland Memorial Trust last month - claimed three gold medals at Grangemouth Sports Complex on Wednesday. Beth, who was born with a rare condition known as Poland's Syndrome, reached the wall first in the 25metre butterfly, 50m front crawl and 50m breast stroke in personal best times. And the Burgh Primary School pupil managed PBs in her two other events - 100m individual medley and 50m back crawl. Her showing was an improvement on last year when she claimed two golds and a silver at the championships. Beth, who trains with the Lothian regional squad, competes this weekend in her first mainstream event for Gala Amateur Swimming Club at Prestonpans. Mum Louise said: "Beth loves her swimming and I think getting the grant from the Rowan Boland Memorial Trust has made her try even harder."
