OLYMPIC hopeful Gemma Spofforth visited Chichester Cormorants for a training session at the pool at Westbourne House School.

Spofforth, who hails from West Sussex and has high hopes for a medal at this year’s London Games, swam for nearly two hours and was filmed by two TV companies.

She spent time talking with Cormorants swimmers and their coaching team and also signed autographs.
