British Swimmers in German Pool Duel

2 February 2011

British swimmers, powered by British Gas, will battle against the best in Germany this weekend at the annual GB v Germany Duel Meet in Essen.

The team will include Commonwealth gold medallist Hannah Miley, Jemma Lowe, who finished 2010 with a British record (short course) for the 200m Butterfly as well as Georgia Davies, Jazz Carlin and Robbie Renwick who also picked up medals in Delhi.

It will be the first international meet for the elite swimmers after a successful 2010 and according to Head Coach Dennis Pursley, it also provides a good opportunity for the development swimmers to experience an international competition.

He said: “I’m looking forward to the meet at the weekend. We have a good mix of both top ranked and development team swimmers.

"It is a multipurpose trip for us. Many will experience this level of competition for the first time and for everyone taking part it will be a good opportunity to tune up before the British Gas Swimming Championships in March.

“The whole meet is a quick, “in and out” trip so training won’t be interrupted.”

The Germany v Great Britain Duel Meet will see winners of each race scoring 5 points, second place three points and one point for third place finishers.

The winning teams in the relay will receive double points and the nation with the most points will be crowned victors of the event.
