Halsall at World Cup with GB team

Triple Isle of Man Commonwealth Youth Games medalist Grant Halsall is in a 40-strong Great Britain Swimming squad at this weekend's World Cup meeting in Berlin.

The Manx swimmer competes for Plymouth Leander, one of the top clubs in England, thanks to a Gubay 'Chase Your Dream' scholarship.

Halsall will represent Great Britain alongside names such as double world champion Liam Tancock, double Commonwealth Games gold winner James Goddard and Olympic medalist Joanne Jackson.

The World Cup meetings are seen as vital preparation towards the London 2012 Olympics.
