PLYMOUTH Leander’s Laura Stephens has been named in Great Britain’s team for December’s FINA World Short Course Championships in Canada.
Britain are taking a squad of just 16 swimmers to the event in Windsor, which starts on December 6.
British Swimming head coach Bill Furniss said: “The team is a mixture of some of our established Olympians and younger swimmers who will benefit from exposure to the world stage as they prepare for the next Olympic cycle.
“The meet provides a good opportunity early in the cycle to build positive team culture and behaviours and work on short course skills.”
Plymouth College pupil Stephens is currently in Arizona at a Great Britain altitude training camp.
