The GB Short Track Speed Skating Junior Development team for the Junior World Cups has today been officially announced.
Adam Hill, who has skated the last two Junior World Championships, will lead the team alongside Willem Murray, Freddie Polak and Elliot Baker. Chloe Cameron, who is based in Calgary, is rewarded with selection following her hard work and development in recent years.

This will be the team for the first half of the season to compete for GB at the Junior World Cup series, with the Performance selection Event in January selecting the team for the second half of the season.
