British B Team head to Portugal
16 July 2013
British Swimming are taking a 10-strong team to this week’s Portuguese National Championships in Famalicao.
Warrender's Olympic 100m Breaststroke semi-finalist Craig Benson is the most experienced internationally of the team while City of Derby's Adam Peaty - who won 50m Breast silver and 100m Breast bronze at last month's British Gas Swimming Championships - will also compete in the Breaststroke events.

Kelly set a personal best for 100m Butterfly silver in Sheffield while Smith made five finals from five events, setting PBs over 50m, 100m and 200m Freestyle.
Like Kelly, Barrett's best performance came in the 100m Butterfly, in which he won bronze in a personal best time.
Joining them will be Bebington's Danielle Lowe - who set a PB for 400m IM bronze in Sheffield last month - as well as Jack Smith (Millfield), Earl Radtschenko (Coventry), Maya Westlake (Lincoln Vulcans) and Olivia Willis (Camden Swiss Cottage).
The competition runs from 18 - 21 July.
