At 24, Katie Skelton was the oldest member of the British team selected for the 2012 Olympics – over six years the senior of the youngest Katie Clark.
But like Clark, Skelton is a product of Reading Royals and made her senior British debut at the FINA World Trophy in 2008.
Her sporting hero is two-time Olympic silver medalwinning synchronised swimmer and multiple world medallist Gemma Mengual of Spain.
