The qulification period ended on May, 12th. Women, born 2002 or later and men, born 2001 or later, are eligible to compete at the European Junior Championships.

Nearly all of the youngsters who are set to compete at the European Junior highlight in Kazan are racing in Berlin this week. Sven Schwarz made it into the German junior team in the 800m and 1500m freestyle. He set a new age group record for the 17-year-olds yesterday over the 800m freestyle. Today, he swam the fastest time of all participants in the 1500m freestyle in 15:28,21.

Maya Tobehn (born 2002, Berliner TSC) achieved another personal best time over the 200m freestyle. For the first time, she stayed under 2 minutes. In the European annual junior best list (17 years and younger) she is still in 2nd place behind German Isabel Gose. Lara Seifert (SC Chemnitz from 1892) was fast in her age group, she won the title for the 15-year-olds in 2:02,06 and defended her title from the previous year.

Louis Dramm (Dresdner Delphine, born 2002) won the men’s 200 free race in his age group with the fastest time of all finalists in 1:51.35.

Malaika Schneider (Hamburger SC, born 2003) defended her title over the 50m breaststroke. She swam the fastest time of the evening in 32.03.

Michael Raje (SSG Saar Max Ritter, born 2006) set the first German age group record of the evening in 30.87 on the 50m breaststroke. He improved the old record of Troy Arnicke from 2004 by six tenths. Fastest in the breaststroke sprint distance was Sebastian Schulz (born 2001, SGS Hamburg) in 29,08, with this performance he could repeat his victory from the previous year.

Lena Riedemann (SV Halle Saale, born 2002) won the title in the 100m backstroke with the fastest performance of all participants in 1:02,17. She is nominated in this event for the Junior European Championships. Yesterday evening Lucie Mosdzien (SV Halle Saale, born 2005) set a new age class record over the 200m backstroke, today she won half the distance in 1:03,52, the second championship title in 2019 for her.

With his winning time over the 100m backstroke of 56,10, Marvin Dahler grabbed the gold medal in his age group and set the fastest time of all finalists. He would have cracked the European Junior Championships qualifying time (56,20) with his performance to start in the 100m backstroke individual event. But the qualifying period has ended and Dahler was already nominated as a relay swimmer.
