Woking Swimming Club’s Ewan Smith has been selected to represent England at the ISF World School Summer Games in Morocco in May.
The Woking College student will compete in the 50m freestyle, 50m butterfly and 4x100m freestyle relay.
He secured selection after swimming impressively last month for the South East Division at the 68th ESSA Inter-Divisional Championships, setting a new meet record in the 50m freestyle in a time of 24.05sec.
Woking SC’s Jocelyn Pegden said: “We are delighted that Ewan will represent England and that all his hard work over the years has paid off.”
In 2015 he set county records in the boys’ 100m individual medley and 50m freestyle, the latter in a sensational time of 23.97sec.
For the last three years he has made selection for the National County Team Championships. He won the senior boys’ 100m butterfly at this year’s Surrey Age Group Swimming Championships.
Surrey County ASA treasurer Jim Boucher said the selection was “a superb achievement” and “we should all be very proud.”
The Gymnasiade School Summer Games, a biennial multi-sport event, gather young students from around the world to experience the spirit of international competition, fair play, friendship and cultural diversity.
Recognised by the International Olympic Committee, the International School Sport Federation (ISF) promotes the values and interests of education through sport.
