British Swimming Selection Trials 2021

19 April 2021

A huge congratulations to all the F-Teamers who competed at the British Swimming Selection Trials. Despite the challenges they have faced this past year, with the lack of pool time and endless zoom sessions, the competition was filled with countless PBs, medals and qualification times.

Young jet Jacob Whittle was off to a cracking start in the 100m Freestyle. The 16-year-old not only broke his PB in the heats, but he did again in the final. He swam a blistering time of 48.76 making him the fastest 16-year-old in British history and placing him 4th in a hot field. The swimming world was quick to compare his times to those of swimming superstars Caleb Dressel (49.28) and Kyle Chalmers (48.69) when they were the same age. This puts him in strong contention for the Team GB 4x100m men's freestyle relay. A bronze medal followed for Jacob in the 50m Freestyle with another PB in the heats (22.40). He swam a 22.55 in the final, finishing behind Benjamin Proud (21.42) and Yusuke Legard (22.10). Jacob finished the last day of the Trials with a PB in the heats of the 200m Freestyle. Jacob Swam an impressive 1:49.12 only just missing out on making the final, where Duncan Scott set a new British National record with a time of 1:44.47.

Jakob Goodman was flying from day 1, swimming a PB in the 400m Freestyle, the 200m Butterfly (2:00.86) and the 100m Butterfly. After 3 days of competing, he narrowly missed out, by just 0.1 seconds, on making it four PBs with his swim in the 200m Freestyle on the final day.

Well done to Scott Gibson who got a PB in the 100m Backstroke and to Mark Ford who also competed in the 100m and 200m Backstroke events and set a new PB in the 100m Butterfly.

The athletes that have been nominated for Team GB, the European Championships and the European Junior Championships will be announced on April the 21st so be sure to stay tuned.
