A teenage swimmer has been selected to represent Great Britain following an eye catching performance in an open water event. Ellesmere Titans swimmer Harriet Rothwell, 15, received the call-up for the European Junior Championships in Croatia after finishing third at the Great North Swim Elite race in Windermere, Lake District, recently.
Head Coach Alan Bircher said "She has stood up under the pressure and produced an outstanding result and I know she'll be excellent in Croatia, she just has that open water racing ability."
Fellow Titans swimmer Olivia Gardner, 15 also competed in the Windermere event and finished seventh. Rothwell is the second to be selected for the Great Britain, following on from 15-year-old Chloe Golding's selection for the British Championships and Commonwealth trials earlier this year
Rothwell will also represent GB at the Germany National Open Water from July.
