Guy starting to show his form after 'weird' 2018

James Guy believes he is coming into form following a ‘weird’ 2018 after setting a competition record at the Edinburgh International Meet.

The Bath University swimmer won the 200m Freestyle final in a time of 1:47.66 to finish ahead of University of Stirling’s Duncan Scott (1:48.13) and his team-mate Tom Dean (1:49.14).

And while he admitted it wasn’t his best performance, he said it had gone some way to fix the mistakes he was making last year.

Guy said: “The 200m Freestyle felt okay – not amazing but it isn’t supposed to as we’re still five weeks from trials and hopefully we can progress that in a few weeks’ time.

“Last year was a really weird year – I’d had six or seven years of just PBing every year but last year was just a bit of an off year.

“We kind of knew what we were doing wrong and this year we’ve fixed that and I think I’ve shown that just then.”

Wilby sets new competition record

James WIlby also set a new competition best time in the 200m Breaststroke – breaking his own record.

He clocked 2:10.24 to beat the previous best of 2.12:02 he set last year.

Loughborough’s Wilby was 1.43 seconds clear of University of Stirling’s Ross Murdoch (2:11.67).

Meanwhile, Jessica Fullalove claimed the gold in the Women’s 100m Backstroke in 1:00.85.

And only half a second separated the Loughborough University trio of Molly Renshaw (1:08.63), Jocelyn Ulyett (1:09.07) and Sarah Vasey (1:09.13) in the Women’s 100m Breaststroke as they finished second, third and fourth respectively behind Spain’s Jessica Vall (1:07.37).
