Team GB’s Olympic swimming squad will compete in May’s European Championships in London as part of their preparations for Rio 2016.

The 26-strong team will represent Great Britain at the London Aquatics Centre in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

“This event comes at a perfect time,” said British Swimming national performance director Chris Spice.

“A major international event at an iconic 2012 Olympic venue – as a team we couldn’t have asked for better.”

The swimming programme of the European Aquatics Championships runs from 16-22 May, with the diving events held a week earlier, beginning on 9 May.

The team includes world champions Adam Peaty and James Guy, plus individual world medallists Jazz Carlin and Siobhan-Marie O’Connor among other world, European and Commonwealth medallists.

“This event also provides a wonderful opportunity for the British public to see and support our swimming stars in home waters once again,” Spice added.
