DIVING UNVEILS EUROPEAN JUNIOR SQUAD


5th July 2007



The event will be held in Trieste and, for many of the group, it will provide the first taste of international competition.

It's the smallest team we've sent to a European Junior Championships for some time now but it's a team that holds the real possibility of medals with two former junior medallists in Callum Johnstone and Charles Calvert competing in their second Europeans.

Junior Olympic Programme Manager for British Diving Kim White will be following the team in Trieste.

"Some of Britain's brightest junior talents will be missing because they're currently working with the senior set-up and we also have a couple of injuries but Trieste will provide a good opportunity to some of our other athletes to test themselves in an international environment," said White.

"Chris Mears is an exciting prospect and will be competing off all three boards (1m, 3m and 10m). It's his first European event so it will be good to see how he does."

Many of the divers will be in action this weekend at the ASA Nationals in Sheffield as the nation's top divers converge for national honours. The event at Ponds Forge runs from Friday 6th to Sunday 8th July. For details visit www.britishswimming.org <http://www.britishswimming.org>
