Quartet selected to represent Swim England at Golden Tour in Nice

FOUR young swimmers from the region have been selected to represent Swim England at the FFN Golden Tour in Nice next month.

Plymouth Leander’s James Hart, Mount Kelly’s Macy Lawrence and Robbie Jones and Harry Noble of Devonport Royal all feature in the 20-strong squad for the competition which will take place over the weekend of February 7-9.

Noble is one of three swimmers in the squad who represented Great Britain at the European Junior Championships, while three more competed at the World Junior Championships.

Richard Blackshaw, Swim England national talent officer, said: “Being selected for the Swim England junior team to compete in Nice will provide the swimmers with valuable experience of competing abroad for their country.

“This will help them make a seamless transition from domestic competitions to the European Junior Championships and World Junior Championships.”

Meanwhile, Caradon Swimming Club are hoping 2020 will bring them more success.

The south east Cornwall club enjoyed a memorable 2019. They won a host of regional and national medals at masters events, including Helen Kula-Przezwanski, who became a world masters champion. Jackson Spry helped Great Britain’s men’s under-19 team win a silver medal at the Age Group World Underwater Hockey Championships in Sheffield, while many of their clubs younger swimmers impressed at meets, including the Cornwall County ASA Championships.

The club ended 2019 by winning promotion to Western Division One of the National Arena League.

Caradon returned to the league after many years away and they finish top of their three Division Two meetings.
