Team GB’s Davenport previews #WSGSwim 2022
Team GB Olympian and Commonwealth Games gold medallist Ross Davenport was today unveiled as the official ambassador for The World School Swim Championships 2022.
The inaugural event will take place at London Aquatics Centre, the home of swimming at the 2012 Olympic Games, on Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st May. It is the latest expansion of The World School Games event series, which provides opportunities across the globe for school athletes to compete in world class sporting facilities, with other host cities including Abu Dhabi, Barcelona and Dubai.
Davenport said: “It is an honour to be back at the scene of one of my proudest moments in swimming, representing Team GB on home soil at the Olympic Games in 2012. It is an incredible opportunity for these young student athletes to compete at these facilities against other schools from across the globe. Events like this are so important to young people both in the pool and outside of it, where they travel as a team, sample the full international tournament experience and build character.”
Davenport spent today working providing a masterclass coaching session with the young athletes, as they trained in the competition pool ahead of tomorrow’s opening races.
Entry is free of charge and doors open at 7:30am on each day. The event is also being live streamed and can be accessed via wsgevents.com/swim22.
