Travelling from all across the globe, 10 Funkita F-Teamers hopped off the plane in Indianapolis to compete at the 6th FINA World Junior Championships.

Team GB superstar Emily Large (@emilylouiselarge) is making some major moves at just 15, smashing it out in the 200m butterfly to snatch a gold medal with a time of 2:07.74! Emily was just shy of a podium finish in the 100m butterfly (58.62) and finished 8th in the 50m butterfly (27.23). Congratulations Emily on such a major achievement!

UK F-Teamer, Ciara Schlosshan (@ciara.schloss) had a fantastic swim in the 200m individual medley, placing 5th in the final (2:13.93). Ciara also competed in the 400m individual medley, coming in 14th in the heats (4:51.01).

Another F-Teamer representing team GB was Amy Bell (@amybell00) who swam incredibly in the 200m breaststroke, placing 5th (2:28.40). Amy also raced in the 200m individual medley finishing 7th just behind team mate Ciara and wrapped up her champs experience with the 400m individual medley, again trailing just behind Ciara and coming in 15th (4:52.09).
