Sweden selects 12 women, 2 men for the Istanbul 2012 World Championships


The Swedish Swimming Federation today selected the Istanbul 2012 national squad, including Therese Alshammar, Jennie Johansson and that controversial Simon Sjödin, but not Sarah Sjöström. Sjöström has said earlier that she was unsure about her World Championships participation, and would use the Swedish short course championships this weekend to gauge her form, I guess that part is settled now.
