A young swimmer who has set his sights on the Olympics has travelled to Hungary in the hope of making a splash in a world championship contest.

Archie Mitchell, aged 18, from Broomhill, trains with the City of Sheffield Swim Squad and is representing Great Britain at the World Junior Open Water Swimming Championships.

The teenager, a sixth form student at King Edward VII school, was one of only two British swimmers selected for the competition’s 7.5km event.
