More than pride and glory at stake at British Swimming Championships

There’s not only pride and glory at stake when the British Swimming Championships begins in Glasgow.

The event takes place at the Tollcross International Sports Centre from 16-21 April.

Some of the biggest names in the sport, including Adam Peaty, Freya Anderson and James Guy, have all confirmed they will be taking part in the event.

And the prestige of being crowned British champion is not the only thing that will spur the competitors on.

The event is also the selection meet for the World Championships, which take place in Korea, in August, the World University Games, World Junior Championships, European Junior Championships and the European Youth Olympic Games.

Exciting few days

Grant Robins, Swim England head of talent – swimming, said: “Swim England pathway team members will be challenging for places on all of the teams.

“It will be an exciting few days of racing with so many prizes up for grabs.

“The swimmers need to remember all of their race skills to be on their top form whilst remembering that we are still only mid-season and to push on through to the summer meets is equally important.”

Heats start daily at 10am with the finals beginning at 6.30pm.

British Swimming will be broadcasting the championships on Deep End Live.
