NINE of Guernsey's 19-strong swimming team for Gotland will be first-timers, but with the likes of Miles Munro, Tom Hollingsworth, Kristina Neves and Robyn Le Friec on board, it is a powerful team heading to Scandinavia this summer.

Brian Allen, the Guernsey Amateur Swimming Association president, said that the selectors had been spoilt for choice in choosing the squad.

'Initially, 43 swimmers from the two local clubs signed up with their intent to compete forms in the hope of gaining selection.

'With a maximum of approximately 20 places available, that meant achieving the qualifying time to gain selection would be hard-fought and not easy to achieve. After a very long period of training towards selection, we can now name 19 successfully selected swimmers.'

Allen said 'there is a good balance within the team'.
