The Spanish swimming federation, RFEN, has released its roster for this year’s European Junior Championships set for Helsinki July 4th-8th. The RFEN is calling the line-up ‘initial’ at this point, but will render the roster finalized once all team preparation/camps are competed. Those preparation camps take place throughout May and June.
Selected from the Junior and Senior Spanish Open Championships, swimmers needed to meet or exceed the RFEN-dictated qualifying time in their respective events, per below. You can review the entire selection criteria here.
