- Live Results
Following the elite men’s edition of examining how the just-concluded 2019 British Swimming Championships impacted the season’s world rankings, let’s take a look at the elite women who may have made some moves.
As opposed to the men having 19 total swims inserted into the top 15 placements across all events, just 9 performances by the women shook up the current world rankings. Of those, only 2 entered the world’s top 5, represented by Molly Renshaw‘s title-winning 200m back (2:23.42) for the 5th fastest in the world, while Aimee Willmott‘s 4:36.98 400m IM also made #5 in her list.
Whereas multiple men earned world ranked times in more than one event, such as Adam Peaty and Duncan Scott, no woman entered the top 15 placements in the world in more than just 1 event.
Somewhat disheartening in terms of relays, only Freya Anderson checks-in among the freestyle world rankings in the top 15 with her 15th place 53.70 100m free.
