IN preparation for the London 2012 Olympic Games, Hatfield Swimming Club’s Adam Brown has been named in the British Gas GBR Swimming Team for the LEN European Championships in Poland in December.

Brown, who trains at the Auburn University in the USA, and the rest of Britain’s swimmers are preparing for action on the international circuit as they supplement their intense early season training with race preparation ahead of the Olympic year.

With eyes firmly focused on the British Gas Swimming Championships 2012 (Selection Trials) at the London Aquatics Centre in March, athletes have been working hard towards meeting the criteria for nomination to Team GB for the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Commonwealth silver and bronze medallist Brown is set to compete in the short course competition of the European Championships.

British Swimming national performance director Michael Scott said: “It’s critical that we provide our swimmers and coaches with access to a range of long course (50m) and short course (25m) competition opportunities over the coming months as they prepare for the British Gas Swimming Championships 2012.

“All these events are an important part of the process for our national squad members as they prepare for the opportunities and challenges that 2012 will present.”
