The highlight for Walker-Hebborn was his 200m backstroke which saw him swim inside the qualifying time for European Junior Championship team (2.04.61).

Walker-Hebborn, who currently trains at the British offshore centre in Australia, also swam the 50m back (28.18) and 100m back (58.18), along with the 100m free (53.61), 200m free (1.53.68) and the 200m individual medley (2.07.82).

Team Ipswich Head Coach Dave Champion said: “The selection for the Junior Championships haven't been made yet but, with the kind of form that Chris is showing right now, who knows what he can do if he's given the opportunity.”
