When it comes to her swimming KIRSTY SIMPSON means business and says her favourite motto is, "Losing is not coming second. It's getting out of the water knowing you could have done better." She holds the Scottish Age Group Record for 100m backstroke (17 years) and is looking forward to the Open Championships in April which is classed as a selection meet for the 2014 Commonwealth Games. A fan of the TV Wild at Heart, Kirsty dreams of going to South Africa.
