High Performance Swim Coach University of Stirling
The level of competition provides a great opportunity to race head-to-head with some of the best athletes from across the continent and beyond, and most importantly gives further international race experience ahead of the Olympics next year.
David Bond, Head of Performance Sport at the University of Stirling, said: “Best of luck to our high-performance swimmers selected to represent Great Britain at the upcoming Under-23 European Championships. It will be fantastic to watch the athletes test themselves against some of the best emerging talent from across the world. We are very proud of their achievements and look forward to following their progress across the event.”
He added: “We’re also proud that Bradley Hay will form part of the Great Britain coaching team at the competition. It is great testament and reward to his commitment for developing athletes to perform at the highest levels of the sport. I have no doubt his extensive knowledge and experience will be a great asset to the team.”
Swim Ireland is hosting the Championships, which will be held at the Sport Ireland National Aquatic Centre in Dublin.
