Royal School swimmers Alicia Dingle (GB) and Niamh Hofland (NED) have been selected to represent Team GB and the Netherlands at the Gyor 2017 European Youth Olympic Festival (EYOF).

The festival will see British athletes compete alongside some 3,000 athletes from 50 European nations including the Netherlands. Athletes come together to compete across 100 Olympic sports from 23-29th July.

With so many athletes already working on the road to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, EYOF plays an important role in the development of young athletes and helps them along the route to achieving their own Olympic dream.

Team GB has a rich history of medal success at EYOFs, having won at least 20 medals in each of the previous 13 summer festivals. They provide crucial experience of multi-sport events for young athletes, with over 50 athletes graduating from a summer EYOF with Team GB going onto compete at the Beijing 2008, London 2012 and Rio 2016 Olympic Games.

Good luck Alicia and Niamh! For more information on The Royal School Elite Swim Squad, please visit the RWSSC website.
