Shropshire Swimming Stars Heading to Helsinki

British Swimming has announced its team to represent Great Britain at the 2018 European Junior Swimming Championships being held in Helsinki and taking place 4th - 8th July. 52 countries participate in the annual championships; an event in which British Swimming has historically enjoyed significant podium success and is now lying in 8th place in the all-time medal table.

Three Ellesmere College Titans have been picked for this year's GB team following their outstanding performances at last week's British Championships. They are Freya Anderson (British and World Junior Champion); Charlie Hutchison (British Silver Medalist and European Youth Olympic bronze medalist); and Angharad Evans (Former European Juniors Team GB team member).

Freya (17), Charlie (15) and Angharad (14) now form part of a 30 strong team, which boasts six newly crowned British Champions in the squad including Ellesmere's very own Freya Anderson.

Freya, Charlie and Angharad are all experienced internationals and looking forward to playing their part in the GB team. In doing so they will be following in the lanes of their team mates Phoebe Griffiths and Ellinor Southward who both competed in last year's championships in Israel.
