Swiss delegation starts at European Junior Championships

Tuesday, July 6, 2021
23 young swimmers will compete at the Junior European Championships in Rome starting today. The focus is on a solid team performance.

The European Junior Championships in Rome have begun! It is the first European Junior Championships in which the Swiss Aquatics delegation will be swimming in arena suits. Team manager David Burkhart is happy about a record-breaking team of 23 selected swimmers, including 10 women and 13 men. According to Swiss Aquatics, no medals are expected this year, but rather a solid team performance. The top priority is for the athletes to be able to call up their best performance in the preliminary heat.

We wish the Swiss delegation every success in Rome and keep our fingers crossed!
