Svensk Simidrott has announced its sizable roster for the upcoming 2018 Nordic Championships. The meet, which traditionally features nine countries in the Scandinavian and Baltic Sea regions, is going to run from December 7-9, 2018. This year, the meet will be held in Oulu, Finland.

Robin Hansson, the Swedish junior record holder in several sprint freestyle events, will headline the Swedish contingent headed to Finland. Tobias Klasson will also be competing — he is one of the best para swimmers out of Sweden right now.

Meanwhile, Edith Jernstedt and Hanna Bergman are coming off of strong showings at the recent 2018 Swedish National Championships in Stockholm, and keep an extra eye on the young Emelie Fast. Just 14, Fast recorded a strong 1:07.79 in the SCM 100 breast at those Swedish Nationals, and she looks to be quickly developing into a strong breaststroker.
