British Joined By Belmonte, Germans For Edinburgh Int’l Meet


Spectators at the 2018 Edinburgh International Swim Meet, which is also incorporating this year’s British National Championships, will have the opportunity to see stars Adam Peaty, James Guy, Ross Murdoch, Siobhan Marie O’Connor and others get in their final racing before the 2018 Commonwealth Games.

Set at the Royal Commonwealth Pool from Thursday, March 1st through Sunday, March 4th, athletes will fine-tune and make their last preparations before heading out to the Gold Coast, Australia for April’s Games. For the younger competitors in Edinburgh, the meet will serve as selection for this summer’s European Junior Championships in Helsinki.

Tickets went on sale for the event last November and now the draft psych sheets are out, giving us an idea of the fields ready to make a splash. Along with British talent, Spanish Olympic champion Mireia Belmonte is set to compete, as is a strong German national team contingency.

Below is the schedule of events for the Edinburgh International Swim Meet, with the draft entry list linked in the bullet points above.
