Three of the 10 strong squad were Reading Royals swimmers - Jade Hearmon, Lucy Farrell and Natalie Saudan and Head Coach for the trip was RR's Kate Coupar.

"Firstly congratulations to the Senior GB team on their excellent results at the World Championships in Shanghai. Making all the finals was brilliant. As a member of the FINA Technical Committee I was fortunate to witness the very professional performances of the athletes and staff. Well done all of you. You have certainly got the whole world talking." - JENNY GRAY

Jan Clayton, President:-
"This year we appointed Kate Coupar as Synchro Performance and Development Coach. Kate has been involved with the club for many years as a swimmer and a coach and chief choreographer. It is exciting to have Kate working full time for the club. Of course I must thank Di Hughes who jas worked tirelessly for the club as Head Coach for many years.
Jade Hearmon, Lucy Farrell & Natalie Saudan were selected to swim as part of the England Development Squad. They attended the Primorje Cup in Croatia and claimed their first bronze medal.
Hannah Green and Rhiannon Williams competed in the Junior Great Britain Squad during the summer and both swam at the Junior European Championships.
Katie Skelton and Katie Clark have successfully retrialled and continue to work towards the Olympics next year".
