Exeter swimmer Liam Tancock has been named in the England squad for this summer’s Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
The 29-year-old – who already has three Commonwealth golds to his name – was officially announced in the squad today alongside the likes of Fran Halsall and Joe Roebuck.
"It's a good day today," he tweeted, "My birthday, and I've been selected to represent the England team at the Commonwealth Games."
Meanwhile, another Devon swimmer, Ben Proud, was also named as part of the 39-strong team.
Earlier this week, Proud broke the British 50m freestyle record.
This week got even better... Officially selected to represent England at the commonwealth games in Glasgow! 77 days to prepare! @werengland
– England chef de mission, Jan Patterson
"This is a really exciting squad of swimmers who will be looking to continue the fine tradition their sport has of performing well under the flag of St George at the Commonwealth Games."
