Posted: 29th April 2019

Congratulations to the Mount Kelly swimmers who have recently been selected to represent their country at upcoming international events.

Oliver and Harry have been selected by British Swimming to compete at the European Junior Championships this summer, after impressing at the recent British Swimming Championships. Federico has been selected to represent Italy.

Federico will also represent Italy at the World Juniors and the World Championships, whilst Adewole will represent Nigeria at the World Juniors and the African Games. Gaurika will represent Nepal at the World Championships. 

Mount Kelly's Director of Swimming, Emma Collings-Barnes, commented, "I am delighted with Harry and Oliver's selection for the European Junior Championships. Both boys are a true testament that the road is not always smooth however if you remain consistent and believe, success will come. Both Harry and Oliver are hoping to go onto Loughborough University to study next year, and this will give them both valuable international experience in their transition into senior swimming."
