Great Britain Call Up for Hatfield's Caleb Hughes

Hatfield Swimming Club’s Caleb Hughes has been named in the British Gas GBR Swimming team for the European Junior Championships to be held in Poznan, Poland.

Hughes is one of 24 elite junior swimmers to have made the GBR squad for the event which takes place from July 10th to 14th 2013.

The European Junior Championships has long been the benchmark meet on the elite junior programme at British Swimming.

Mark Perry, interim technical lead for British Swimming, who leads the development programme said: “The European Junior Championships is one of the target meets on the Podium Potential Programme and this year we have adopted a tough selection policy.

“We are taking a smaller, more medal focused group who we believe have the potential to make the team for Rio 2016 and beyond.

“This meet offers some swimmers the first chance to represent their country at a very high standard of competition, giving them valuable experience for the future.”
