Crowhurst selected by British Swimming for 2020 Para Swimming European Championships

Maidenhead’s Katie Crowhurst has been selected to swim at the European Championships by British Swimming.

Katie has been picked in the 24 strong para-swimming squad for the 2020 World Para Swimming Open European Championships, which take place in Funchal, Madeira from May 17-23.

It is the second time in four years that the Portuguese island has been selected to host the event.

The para-swimming national championships in Manchester last week acted as a key opportunity for Britain’s best swimmers to stake a claim for selection.

Also named in the squad are seven-time world champion Alice Tai and Paralympic champion Ellie Simmonds. Katie swims for Wycombe District Swimming Club.

Team leader Catherine Gilby said: “This is a great chance for established team members to have a race opportunity that supports their Individual Athlete Plans as we head towards the Paralympic Games.

“In addition, the competition is the perfect environment for our emerging athletes targeting 2024/2028 to gain international experience.”
