BOYS READY FOR BRITISH CHAMPS

28 February 2018

British Swimming Champs
The British Swimming Champs are kicking off!

Each year athletes go head to head at the British Swimming Championships to be crowned British Champ and qualify for Team GB at various international swim meets. This year the British Champs has piggybacked on top of the Edinburgh International meet to allow swimmers from all over the world to join in on the competition.

After a storming short course season F-Teamer Archie Goodburn will no doubt want to continue his run of success into the long course season. At the Scottish SC Nationals in December he broke several age group records in both the breaststroke and butterfly events. Archie will compete in plenty of races in Edinburgh, so although a tough ask to replicate those fast swims we know he'll have it in the bag!

Tom Derbyshire will have a tough week, as he will step up to the blocks in the 400, 800 and 1500 freestyle events.

Michael Gunning will be making waves in the 100 and 200 butterfly, and 200 freestyle. "It will be great to race against some international swimmers in Edinburgh, so I'm looking forward to that."

For Jacob Peters his British Champs will look slightly different this year! After qualifying for the Commonwealth Games in April in the 200-metre butterfly this will be his last chance to put his race skills to practice. "I'm hoping to medal in my events even while in hard training. I'll be trying to work on holding my speed going through the back end of the race, and not tying up."

Both Max and Joe Litchfield will go head to head in the 200 and 400 individual medley events. Joe will also add the 200 butterfly to his schedule which he may also get to swim in out on the Gold Coast, whilst Max will add the 400-metre freestyle to his programme. He'll be looking to get back into the swing of things after a few months of injury.

Elliot Clogg will also be in a block of hard training, as he too will join the team on the Gold Coast in just a few weeks' time.

Last year Matt Richards stormed onto the British scene after breaking record after record every time he hit the water. Matt will be swimming in the both the 100 and 200 freestyle in which he broke the 14-year-old long course records just before Christmas! Now he's 15, the next list of times are ready for the taking.

Irish swimmer Brendan Hyland will land in the UK the day the start of the meet after spending some time on a warm weather camp in Malaga. Although not his target meet, Brendan hopes to swim some solid times in Edinburgh where there's some good chances to get stuck in and race.

F-Teamer Robbie Powell will join Brendan later in the year at the Irish Nationals, where he hopes to win some medals and smash some PBs.
