The trio’s European Junior selection comes on the back of some top performances at the recent Edinburgh International Meet incorporating the British Swimming Championships.

Hearts head coach Phil Potter said: “We’re delighted for both Keanna and Lexie on the news of their selection.

“Both swimmers have worked incredibly hard and smart to achieve this and it’s a great reflection of their personal qualities that they’ve managed to do so.”
