Sam Osbourne joins other the Japanese National team camp with other GB Athletes

Sam Osborne has been selected by British Swimming as part of a very small group of just 4 swimmers being given the opportunity to train in Japan. The trip will take place between the 9th and 21st December 2018 and will see Sam training alongside the other GB athletes as part of the Japanese National team camp. With the Tokyo 2020 Olympics not too far away British Swimming is looking to work closely with Japan in the lead up to the games.

The city of Suzuka will play host to the small group of aspiring talent that will look to work on building resilience, grit and character

Further to the great news of Sam’s selection, Chris Littler has also been selected as coach for the Japan Development Camp. This is a selection that was supported by Swim England following Chris’ place on the National Coach Pathway Development Programme.

Ex-senior squad member Luke Davies attended this same camp with GB in 2015, alongside other swimmers who have also gone on to represent GB on senior teams. I am very aware of the nature of the trip from my dealings with British Swimming during Luke’s trip and I’m sure Sam and Chris will benefit greatly.

To have two Birmingham representatives on such a small team, shows British Swimming have faith in our programme and acknowledge the great work that the swimmers are doing at City of Birmingham but also have trust in our coaches.

Congratulations to Sam and Chris for their selections.
