National Altitude Camp 4

Cam Kurle and Tom Derbyshire are among sixteen swimmers in Colorado as part of a three week altitude camp.

The camp, part of the World Class Programmes’ National Altitude Strategy, is the fourth in a series of 10 running up to Tokyo 2020, taking place around the world  with the aim of preparing athletes to compete on the international stage. Those selected to go on the camp include seasoned athletes and targeted transitioning juniors.

The latest camp sees swimmers using the facilities at the USA Olympic Training Complex in Colorado Springs ahead of a busy year of competition – highlights including the British Swimming Championships (as part of the Edinburgh International Meet) in March, Commonwealth Games in April and a home European Championships in Glasgow in August. Team Leader Tim Jones said: “These camps are an integral part of getting the most out of our swimmers and physiologically preparing them for the rigours of senior international competition.

“Each of our athletes has been given individual challenges for the camp – some may come away seeing immediate benefits from training at altitude, whereas others will be able to use it as part of their longer-term progression."
