It was a quiet second day in Sheffield in terms of selection for the world championships, with nobody dipping under the required standards. There were however several swimmers putting themselves forward for a spot on one of the home nations’ Commonwealth Games squads.
The British Championships is at least part of the selection process for Britain’s World Championship team and the Commonwealth Games teams for England, Wales and Scotland, as outlined in greater detail in our guides to each policy.
Below we have summarised the selection position after day 2 of competition. Please note this is only our interpretation of how each policy will be applied and final selections need to be confirmed by the relevant selectors in due course. If you spot an error please get in touch.
There were no additions to the GB roster on the second night of finals, with nobody making the selection standard, although Medi Harris, Abbie Wood and James guy were all less than a second shy.
A more successful evening for England with four new names added to the selection mix which could now see senior international debuts for Mason Wilby and Lauren Cox. They were joined by James Guy, who confirmed his place in the 200 fly, an event where Jay Lelliott also made the time.
It was deja vu for Craig Benson, Ross Murdoch and Archie Goodburn as the three added 50m breaststroke consideration times to the set they had posted over 100m on Day 1. There were no other additions to the Scottish pool however.
Medi Harris was the only Welsh swimmer inside a consideration time with her 100m backstroke victory, in an event where she had already posted a new Welsh record this year.
