2017 British World C’ships Team Tracker: Day 2 Qualifiers


The full selection policy for the 2017 World Championships is linked in the meet outline above. At a high level, the first place finisher of each individual event automatically qualifies for that specific individual event provided he/she swims a time at or below the first qualification time listed by each event in our recaps.

If the first place swimmer does not meet or exceed that qualifying time, then the athlete may be considered for selection as long as he/she falls within 2% of the 2nd time listed by each event. Runners-up also must be within 2% of the 2nd qualification time in order to be considered for selection. You can read more about the policy here.

With the aforementioned applied, here is how things shape up after Day 2 of the 2017 British Championships:

Automatic Qualifiers:

Possible Consideration (1st or 2nd place and within 2% of consideration standard):

  • James Guy, 400m freestyle
  • Stephen Milne, 400m freestyle
  • Hannah Miley, 400m IM
  • Aimee Willmott, 400m IM
  • Ross Murdoch, 100m breaststroke
  • Georgia Davies, 100m backstroke
  • Molly Renshaw, 200m breaststroke

Don’t forget, GB’s actual selection policy is “we’ll do whatever we want and take all our favourites”. The list above and the published selection criteria means very little to those in charge. (Dan Wallace in Rio…)

With how fast Peaty is, and with Duncan Scott’s freestyle speed and James Guy on the fly I think they will, potential medal opportunity,

I think the top four will be the same as last year: USA, GBR, AUS and CHN in no particular order. (CHN finished four in Rio but was Dq ed). Japan will mount a challenge for a medal if they can get decent flyer and Irie swim well.
