The three England Talent synchronised swimming squads have been confirmed for the 2015 season after the completion of trials at the end of 2014.
Following on from a record-breaking number of entries at the 2014 ASA National Age Group Synchronised Swimming Championships, the competition was fierce at the trials with a higher overall standard than ever.
While the Junior Training squad - from which athletes will be picked to compete internationally - had already been selected, 20 athletes contested for spots on the Age Group (13-14 Yrs) and Development (U12) squads.
Athletes went through a series of tests starting with swimming - which included a timed 400m front crawl in the 50m pool - followed by several tests including holding their breath.
There were also synchronised swimming tests and flexibility testing in and out of the water.
Finally, all athletes were asked to perform some of the England Talent routine from 2014 to show their ability to master the components of the routine.
The athletes named on the three squads are:
