Bromley Swimming Club
Bromley’s biggest star may well be Emma Raducanu right now, but Tamryn van Selm may hope to steal her crown in the future.
The 18-year-old was born in nearby Orpington but represents Bromley Swimming Club while both young stars attended Newstead Wood School - and van Selm has been tipped for big things since joining the British Swimming World Class Programme in 2020.
Like Raducanu, van Selm will be hoping for victory on US soil after committing to studying at the University of North Carolina from September.
But, before then, van Selm will be competing in a maiden major senior championship as part of Team England at the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.
At the British Swimming Championships in April, van Selm displayed her potential by dipping below two minutes for the 200m freestyle for the first time as she reached the finals of the 100m, 200m and 400m freestyle.
