Former Team Ipswich swimmers Chris Walker-Hebborn and Lewis Coleman have been named in the England squad for the Commonwealth Games, in Glasgow, which begins in July.
Walker-Hebborn goes into the games as a hot prospect, having won gold in both the 50 and 100m backstroke at the 2014 British Gas Swimming Championships in Glasgow, last month.
Coileman, meanwhile, is a member of the GB World Class Development Squad and organised a successful world record attempt in February, when 100 swimmers swam 100m each, one after another, for Swim For Leukaemia, a charity founded by Coleman, after his mother Margaret was diagnosed with the disease in 2012.
