The British Universities & Colleges Sport Championships kick-off their long course competition in Sheffield today, with both emerging athletes and established stars alike set to race. Last year’s event saw then-Plymouth Leander swimmer Ben Proud smash a new British National Record in the men’s 50m freestyle, while the short course version in November resulted in Stirling’s Duncan Scott taking things to a new level across his free and fly events.

This year, the 3-day long course affair will see Olympians Adam Peaty, Jazz Carlin, James Guy and Siobhan-Marie O’Connor all compete as guests of honor in the meet attracting a total of 1158 competitors. Below are other key swimmers and events to look for at Ponds Forge beginning today. Look for daily recaps of all the action.

  • Bath – Jay Lelliott in 200 freestyle/200 butterfly/400 freestyle
  • Edinburgh – Corrie Scott in 50/100 breaststroke; Lucy Hope in 50 backstroke/100 freestyle/200 freestyle
