The full British team has been named following the close of the selection window and the final domestic racing opportunity at the British Swimming Glasgow Meet, which provided the biggest return to racing opportunity yet for juniors since the first UK lockdown.

Ahead of the Championships, Team Leader Alan Lynn said: “As the world comes to terms with the ongoing recovery from the pandemic, we are very grateful for the opportunity to compete in Rome. High-quality racing, outdoors, in one of the most iconic pools in our sport will be a great learning experience for our young team.

“My expectations are that the swimmers will race hard, soak up the competitive challenge and emerge from the Eternal City as better swimmers than when they arrived.”
