Junior Swimmers, Big Event

27 June 2019

Katie Shanahan
Katie Shanahan is ready to take on the competition at European Juniors.

Next up on the summer racing calendar for our young guns is the European Junior Swimming Championships, which is being held this year in Kazan, Russia from July 3-7. It's a great event for gaining international race experience and, for some, it will mark their first time competing abroad. One F-Teamer who is no stranger to international racing is Katie Shanahan.

Katie is fresh off a club training camp in Callela, Spain where F-Teamer Aimee Willmott joined her for a week of medley training in the sunshine. She's now ready to give Europeans her all in hopes of continuing her record-breaking streak!

Katie let us in on what it is about IM racing that she loves so much. "Being an IM swimmer means that training never really gets boring as I get to mix up all four strokes. I like the 200m IM best out of the two events as I like the sprint involved, but my coach always tells me I'm better at the 400m!"

Katie is focused leading into the event, but still has big goals on her mind. "I'm hoping to race well and gain some more international experience. It would be great to make a final at my first European Juniors, but I'm hoping for more. To make it onto the podium would be amazing. In the future I'd love to represent Great Britain at the Olympics so this is the start."
