The 22-strong team features Millfield's Brodie Williams (pictured), 2017 World Championship finalist Freya Anderson and European Junior silver medallist Ciara Schlosshan. Last year’s European Junior champion Emily Large and medallists Anna Maine and Elliot Clogg also feature as part of the team.

The six-day competition begins on 23 August and will see athletes tackling the full Olympic programme as well as 50m Breaststroke, 50m Butterfly and 50m Backstroke.

British Swimming’s Head of Elite Development Tim Jones is looking forward to the team taking a step up again at a major competition.

“This will be an exciting event coming at the conclusion of a busy season of high quality racing,” Jones said. “We have already seen some incredible performances by junior swimmers from across the globe at the recent World Championships in Budapest and European Junior Championships in Netanya. As an event the World Juniors is growing in importance, and for that reason we have chosen to prioritise the meet for a sizeable group of British swimmers.   

“Our goal will be to continue to unearth and develop some exciting junior talent who show the potential to add to our British result in Tokyo 2020, but also reinforce the need for our athletes to be at their best at these ‘end of season’ benchmark events. We look forward to stepping up to the plate against some of our keenest international rivals.”
