British Champs Day 5 – Selection Tracker

There were two standout performances on the penultimate night of competition in Sheffield as Duncan Scott reminded us of his 200IM pedigree, dragging a fast finishing Tom Dean to a new best time, and Lewis Burras handed Ben Proud his first domestic defeat in eight years in the 50m freestyle. Here’s the selection picture with one day to go.

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 1 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.


Tom Dean added himself to the frame for the 200IM and Lewis Burras added the 50m free to his qualification in the 100, but otherwise there was no movement in the GB selection standings.


It was double Freya as Anderson and Colbert added themselves to the pot in the 400 freestyle. Dean and Burras added England consideration times to their worlds ones


The state of play for Wales after 5 days of competition is shown below.


Duncan Scott, unsurprisingly made the grade in the 200IM, while Katie Shanahan did likewise in the women’s equivalent.

NOTE: An earlier version of this tracker incorrectly showed the mixed freestyle relay. The Scottish selection policy states that “There will be no nomination standards for mixed relays. Selection for mixed relays will be made by the National Coach from swimmers within the final selected team.” Apologies for any confusion.
