International selection for Dorset swimmers

April 27, 2017   By


Some of British Swimming’s brightest prospects have been selected to compete at the European Junior and World Junior Swimming Championships as a combined group of 58 athletes. A team of 37 athletes will compete at the LEN European Junior event in Netanya, Israel from 28 June to 2 July while a team of 21 has been selected to compete at the FINA World Junior Championships from 23 to 28 August in the US city of Indianapolis.

The selections come off the back of the British Swimming Championships in Sheffield last week and British Swimming Head of Elite Development Tim Jones, who will lead the teams to Israel and the US and with his eye firmly on the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, commented, “Our ethos was to be inclusive rather than exclusive as we think it’s right to cast the net a little bit wider with the juniors who could be a significant force for us in three years’ time in Tokyo.”

The British team selected for the World Junior Championships will be spearheaded by three reigning European Junior Champions in Freya Anderson, Taz Pugh and Emily Large and will include Jacob Peters of Poole SC, one of only two swimmers to be selected from the ASA SouthWest region. The British Swimming team selected for the European Junior Championships in Israel will include Jasmine McCrea, also of Poole SC, and who is one of seven selected from the region. Congratulations to both!
