– David and Fiona Waddell, Chloe's parents
We are devastated. Chloe was exceptionally outgoing, extremely popular and had a wonderful smile - she was always smiling at all times and she had a kind word for everybody at all times. "There was never a dark day for Chloe, everywhere she went she had lots of friends. She was charming and polite, accepting and encouraging. "She worked incredibly hard. She loved swimming, she was very focused on it and she wanted to go as far as she could. She was also bright academically, everything she did she gave 100 percent. We are very proud of her.
A rising swimming star has died in bed at home in Greater Manchester just hours after she won her latest accolade.
