Fantastic five named in British Swimming squad for World Championships

25 April 2017

Five University of Bath-based swimmers have been selected 29-stong British Swimming team for this summer’s FINA World Championships in Budapest, Hungary.

Olympic medallists Jazz Carlin, James Guy, Siobhan-Marie O’Connor and Chris Walker-Hebborn will be joined by fellow National Centre Bath swimmer Calum Jarvis (pictured), a Sports Performance graduate.

All five were medallists at the last World Championships in Russia two years ago, with Guy, Jarvis, O’Connor and Walker-Hebborn all winning gold.

Coaches Dave McNulty and Jol Finck will also be part of the six-strong British coaching team in Budapest.

The selections were confirmed after a medal-packed week at the 2017 British Swimming Championships where Bath-based swimmers won eight titles.
