WILTSHIRE’S Stephanie Millward has won a place in the Great Britain squad for the 2019 World Para Swimming Championships, which will take place in London in five months’ time.

With London announced as hosts just two weeks ago, a high calibre group of 24 British swimmers will compete in the London Aquatic Centre between 9-15 September, with a large home crowd expected.

Box swimmer Millward has won 10 Paralympic medals during her career, including two golds at the Rio Games in 2016.

Head coach Rob Aubry said: “I’m delighted with the team that we have selected to represent Great Britain at the World Championships in London in September. We have selected a team that will not just make finals, but challenge for medals in front of a home crowd.

“With a year to go until Tokyo, we have also selected a couple of new faces onto the team, to gain valuable experience within the final preparation phase. These athletes will be working hard on race preparation and learning what it takes to deliver their best performances under pressure.

“We have always delivered strong performances in the female relays but I’m delighted that we’ve been able to select a strong S14 Mixed Relay combination too. I’m excited about the prospect of this team and future development of these individuals, as we continue to push these combinations forwards at a global level.”
