Congratulations (again!) to Joel Thompson, who at the age of 14 just can’t stop winning at swimming. The latest big news is that Joel has been selected from the England Talent Programme to represent Great Britain at the forthcoming International Competition in Italy from 29th April-1st May 2016.
Joel was selected after attending phase 1 and phase 2 of the England Talent Development Programme, as well as excelling himself in competition and VERY narrowly missing out (by milliseconds) in junior (under 16) selection for Olympic trials in Toll Cross, Glasgow this April.
Tania Thompson, Joel’s mother, said: ”The selection for GB is phase 3 and an opportunity for Joel to experience International competition, as well as furthering his pathway to possible “Podium success”! Joel is as ever dedicated and focused and we are so very proud of his achievements and the way he conducts himself.
