Britain to send just five to swim Euros

Small Euros team for GB


Commonwealth medallists James Goddard, Robbie Renwick and Michael Jamieson will be looking to put in some solid swims to sharpen their racing skills while Craig Gibbons and Sophie Allen will make up the team of five.

“Participation in the European Championships was made optional for the British Olympians," said head coach Dennis Pursley.

“The swimmers were encouraged to base their decisions on whether participation would enhance or compromise their preparation for the Olympics.

"The five who accepted the invitation will not be tapered for peak performance but will benefit from the opportunity to sharpen their racing skills.”
