A 30-strong team, including six British Senior champions, will be battling it out at the European Junior Championships this summer in Helsinki, Finland from July 4 to 8.
British Swimming’s Head of Elite Development Tim Jones said: “We are really pleased to be able to select a strong team of 30 swimmers to compete in Helsinki at the start of July 2018. This is an extremely important year for British Swimming; the second year of this Olympic cycle is one of our final opportunities to unearth some new talent ahead of the 2020 Tokyo Games.
“In amongst our team, we have been able to name some familiar and experienced junior swimmers who have already successfully begun the transition into the senior ranks. We hope to be able to identify some more hidden gems at this event that can become potent forces on the British Team for many years to come.
“With an extended period of preparation time between now the start of the meet, our focus now will be to ensure all of our team members swim season-best performances at these Championships.”
