PLYMOUTH Leander’s Sophie Freeman and Mount Kelly’s Erin Little have been named in Great Britain’s squad for next month’s European Junior Championships in Rome.
Butterfly specialist Freeman and freestyle star Little feature in a squad of 24 for the event which will be held at the Stadio del Nuoto between July 6-11.
They are joined in the GB team by Tamryn van Selm, Katie Shanahan, Ed Mildred and Evelyn Davis, who all competed at the recent senior European Aquatics Championships.
GB team leader Alan Lynn said: “As the world comes to terms with the ongoing recovery from the pandemic, we are very grateful for the opportunity to compete in Rome. High-quality racing, outdoors, in one of the most iconic pools in our sport will be a great learning experience for our young team.
“My expectations are that the swimmers will race hard, soak up the competitive challenge and emerge from the Eternal City as better swimmers than when they arrived.”
