Loughborough Squad Having Fun Training in the Florida Sun

It appears that James Gibson‘s impressive Loughborough squad is enjoying their training camp in the Florida sun.

The group consisting of Fran Halsall, Georgia Davies, Rachael Kelly, Liam Tancock, Adam Barrett and James Disney-May are currently training in Florida in preparation for the British Gas National Championships on April 14th-18th in London.

The competition will be the trials for the World Championships in Kazan, Russia, the European Games in Baku, Azerbaijan and the Youth Olympic Festival in Tbilisi, Georgia.

One of their stops has been Pine Crest School in Fort Lauderdale.

The Loughborough group had a successful summer in 2014. Halsall, Tancock, Barrett and Davies all collected hardware in individual events at the Commonwealth Games. Halsall and Davies then went on to finish in the top three in multiple events at the European Championships in Berlin.

Kelly and Davies have already had a strong start to the year. Kelly posted a time of 58.25 in the 100 butterfly at BUCS to put her in a tie with Inge Dekker the second fastest time in the world. Davies recorded a 28.16 in the 50 backstroke at the Flanders Speedo Cup which puts her third in the world rankings.
