Swimmers set for Far East camp

11 Dec 2018

A group of four swimmers are set to take part in a nine-day development camp out in Japan this month.

The city of Suzuka will play host to the small group of aspiring talent that will look to work on building resilience, grit and character.

The selected swimmers will be fully immersed in the Japanese National Development Camp and will do everything their Japanese counterparts do.

The camp will take the athletes out of their comfort zone both physically, mentally and also culturally. Increasing the volume of work in the water, with a focus on endurance building.

The boys will gain a genuine first-hand insight into Japanese culture, adding an extra dimension and learning experience to the training camp process.

Commenting on the four athletes selected for the camp, British Swimming Pathway Implementation Manager, Kevin Renshaw, said, “The four boys have been selected for this camp because they have all demonstrated progression and personal development in recent months.

“We believe that they deserve the opportunity to accelerate their development and add character traits, which would take much longer to acquire within a home programme environment.”
