All The Links You Need For The 2024 British Olympic Trials

2024 BRITISH SWIMMING CHAMPIONSHIPS (OLYMPIC TRIALS)

The 2024 British Swimming Championships kick off tomorrow, Tuesday, April 2nd with the competition representing the sole opportunity for the nation’s swimmers to qualify for this summer’s Olympic Games.

Action is taking place at the London Aquatics Centre, with the elite affair returning to the venue after a 5-year absence.

Each evening session will include a Junior Final consisting of Open/Males and Females born 2006 – 2010 and a multi-class Para Final, B-Final and Open Paris Final.

The top finisher in each event will be added to the British roster for Paris, provided they meet or exceed the stiff Aquatics GB (formerly British Swimming)-mandated qualification times outlined in the selection policy in the bullet points at the top of this post.

Additional allocations may be made post-facto at the decision of Performance Director Chris Spice and Head Coach Bill Furniss.

Below is the event schedule, with the competition spanning a thrilling six days.

While we await swimming to begin from London, refresh yourself on a few top stories headed into the main event.

British Champs were last in London (I think) in the Covid affected 2021 trials

  1. it Is only the winner that gets selected provided they swim the aquatics GB proscribed time. Finish second in let’s say the women’s 200 fly whilst swimming a time faster than the existing world record means you go into the discretionary picks pile.

I feel like a kid on Christmas eve. Not the most electrifying first day based on entry times, but we should see some good racing – I was very excited to see the two Freya’s going head to head in the 200 as I thought they could both really push the NR (1.55.5), but hopefully Freya A can get well soon and Freya C can still run the 15 year old record close. Here’s hoping the girls can hit the combined nomination time without Anderson; It won’t be easy!

Peaty is obviously the story in the 100br, but I am looking forward to seeing some of the kids behind him – After a few barren years we’ve had a couple… Read more »
