Paralympic pair selected for European Champs

12th April 2011

A pair of TeamBath Paralympians have been selected to represent Great Britain at the IPC Swimming European Championships in Berlin this summer.

Kate Grey and Liz Johnson are both named in the GB team for the championships, which take place from 3-10 July.

The championships are an opportunity for Britain's swimmers to put down a marker ahead of the London 2012 Paralympic Games.

Liz won gold in the SB6 100m breaststroke at the Beijing 2008 Paralympic Games. Kate, a University of Bath Coach Education and Sports Development graduate, also competed in Beijing and was voted the University of Bath's Sports Personality of the Year just under a year ago.

The pair are both coached by Mark Skimming, head swimming coach at the University of Bath.
