A Manx swimmer has been named in Britain's squad for this summer's FINA World Championships in Budapest.

Charlotte Atkinson secured her spot in the team after winning two titles at the British Championships last week, and finishing second in a third event.

The 19-year-old, who set Manx records in the 50m, 100m and 200m butterfly last week, is included after meeting the consideration time at the championships in Sheffield.

29 swimmers have been named in the squad for the World Championships, which take place in July.
