11 December 2013Welsh swimming duo Jazz Carlin and Jemma Lowe set to take on Europe's best
Welsh duo Jazz Carlin and Jemma Lowe will be part of the British Gas GBR Swimming Team as they continue a busy short course season at the LEN European Championships (25m) in Denmark.
The event is the second in a series of events targeted by British athletes as they look to add race preparation to the heavy block of training they’re currently undergoing in preparation for next year’s Commonwealth Games.
The team of 12 will race over four days at the Jyske Bank Boxen arena in the Danish city of Herning and British Head Coach Bill Furniss will be looking to the team to continue their good short course season.
“Quite a few of the athletes will compete in Denmark off the back of a busy FINA World Cup series,” said Furniss.
“They’ve been some good performances so far this season and I’ll be looking for this to continue through the Europeans before ending at the Duel in the Pool in Glasgow later this month.
“These short course events give our athletes great opportunities to work on their race preparation and technique while they continue to train in preparation for the busy year ahead where focus will fall on the Commonwealth Games.
“I’ll be looking to see how athletes approach each event and how they make necessary adjustments to their performances in line with their progression from heats to finals.”
