Germany was a major factor at the first two editions of the 2013 World Championships, but in 2011, they struggled to just two medals and one victory from Christian Diener with a new Meet Record in the boys’ 50 backstroke.
This 2013 roster will be without its biggest junior star Leonie Beck, but still will have plenty of big names.
That includes European Junior Champion in the 200 backstroke Sonnele Ozturk and her teammate Laura Riedemann, who earned bronze in all three backstroke events at the same meet.
Lisa Hopink is a medal candidate in the 200 IM (she was 2:16 for bronze at European Juniors) as well.
The star of the men’s team would be Yannick Lindberg, who has been 1:01.7 in the 100 meter and 2:13 in the 200 meter breaststroke. He’s the next generation of the impressive German men’s breaststroke group.
