European champion Isabel Gose will headline a 23-strong German team for the 2023 LEN U23 Swimming Championships in Dublin this summer.
The 20-year-old, who claimed gold in the 400m freestyle at Roma 2022, will be among the favourites for further success at the inaugural event which will run from 11-13 August.
Gose will join team-mates Nina Holt, Nele Schulze, Lisa-Marie Finger, Luca Nik Armbruster, Oliver Klemet and Timo Sorgius by racing in Ireland just over two weeks after the conclusion of the World Aquatics Championships in Fukuoka, Japan.
“Gaining competitive experience at international level is part of the best possible preparation for the Olympic Games, so we don’t want to miss this opportunity before Paris 2024,” said competitive sports director Christian Hansmann.
“We want to get additional tailwind for the Olympic season in Ireland.”
Germany follows Great Britain, who announced their 18-strong squad for the LEN European U23 Swimming Championships last month, with other leading nations expected to formalise their line-ups in the coming weeks.
