Paul Murgatroyd, Head Coach for Talent, commented: 
"I am pleased to see so many of the junior athletes performing so well at the recent round of selection races and there are some very talented individuals going overseas to represent Great Britain this summer. The JWOC team has a range of international experience, with some 'veteran' athletes, such as Fiona Bunn going to her fourth JWOC, along with others, such as Daniel Spencer and Niamh Hunter, who are appearing in a GB vest for only the second time in their careers. It will be interesting to see how this group deal with the challenges of what promises to be an intriguing JWOC in Hungary, as a combination of the heat and inland forested sand dune terrain test their skills to the maximum! I am excited also to see the potential in the EYOC team, with five M/W16's making their international debuts, and I feel there is some real potential in this group to do not only well in Bulgaria, but also beyond this, as they embark on what we hope are long and successful careers in the sport. Finally, the JEC team brings many of these two groups together to gain further international exposure in a unique JEC, where the format in Switzerland includes a mixed sprint relay, a middle and a mass start, gaffled long race, all for the first time at this particular competition. Good luck to all involved in the summer's racing!"
