RWS Swimmer Niamh Hofland has been in action this week in Hódmezővásárhely, Hungary.

The Dutch team are comprised of 12 women and four men who trained for a week at a training camp in Debrecen, preparing for the competition.

Niamh has been competing for Holland in the 800fc and 400fc as one of the youngest individual swimmers at the meet. After a successful season
competing in a wide range of events, Niamh has focused on the 400IM, 400FC and 800FC. Niamh has given a good account of herself while on the
Dutch team using the experience to learn and reflect on process goals. Niamh is eligable to race (subject to qualification) for the next few years so there is much to look forward to and many ways to improve in the pool and on land.

The European Junior Championships have long been used to develop talent in each nation with the end goal competing at the Olympic Games and
achieving poduim places. Talented swimmers have cut their teeth since 1967 within this successful competiton framework. You will see swimmers succeed and fail but a common trend is apparent; the swimmers who meet their long term goals treat success and failuire together as another learning experience and incentive to race again and take another "stroke" towards their goals.

The Dutch team includes:

    Laura van Engelen
    Niamh Hofland
    LouLou Janssen
    Indy Jongman
    Ya’elle Lücht
    Rosey Metz
    Tes Schouten
    Claire Verkijk
    Marieke Tienstra
    Loulou Vos
    Josien Wijkhuijs
    Frederique Janssen
    Tom Donker
    Wietse Waninge
    Nyls Korstanje
    Frank Roovers


The future is bright, the future is orange!! Well done Niamh
