2017 British World Cships Team Tracker Day 4: Consideration List Grows


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. However, coaching discretion ultimately determines the final roster, so nothing is completely objective.

With the aforementioned applied, here is how things shape up after Day 4 of the 2017 British Championships:

Automatic Qualifiers:

  • Adam Peaty, 100m breaststroke
  • Jocelyn Ulyett, 200m breaststroke
  • Max Litchfield, 400m IM
  • Duncan Scott, 100m freestyle

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

  • James Guy, 400m freestyle & 100m butterfly
  • Stephen Milne, 400m freestyle
  • Hannah Miley, 400m IM
  • Aimee Willmott, 400m IM
  • Ross Murdoch, 100m breaststroke & 200 breaststroke
  • Georgia Davies, 100m backstroke
  • Molly Renshaw, 200m breaststroke
  • Daniel Jervis, 1500m freestyle
  • Charlotte Atkinson, 200m butterfly
  • Alys Thomas, 200m butterfly
  • James Wilby, 200m breaststroke
