Nova Centurion’s Paralympic medallists Oliver Hynd and Charlotte Henshaw have been named on the British team for the 2013 IPC World Championships.

Paralympic SM8 200m Individual Medley champion Hynd secured qualification times for three events at last weekend’s British International Disability Swimming Championships in Sheffield.

The 18-year old won silver in the 400m Freestyle and finished fourth in the 200m Individual Medley and 100m Backstroke, the latter in a personal best 1:07.16.

Hynd will now head to his first Worlds this summer where he will look to add to his three medals from the 2011 Europeans and three medals from last year’s Paralympics.

SB6 Paralympic silver medallist Henshaw set the qualification time in her favourite event of 100m Breaststroke, winning bronze in 1:40.24.

The 26-year old won SB6 100m Breaststroke silver on her IPC World Championship debut in Eindhoven three years ago.

The 2013 IPC World Championships in Montreal will take place from 12th - 18th August.
