We revealed earlier this month that 3-time Olympian Hannah Miley would be among the Scottish swimmers head to Stanford, California to compete at the U.S. National Championships. With the psych sheets now published we can identify the remaining British continency, as well as the strong Australia representation set to race at the 5-day meet.
Note: foreign swimmers can swim the A, B, and C finals, but not the 18 & under D final.
From Australia, we’ll see the likes of Elijah Winnington, Matthew Temple, and Kotuku Ngawati hit the California pool, with Temple coming straight from the World Championships in Gwangju, Korea. There, the 20-year-old finished 8th in the men’s 100m fly and 10th in the 200m fly.
As for Winnington, the World Junior Record holder had a nightmarish World Championships Trials, which rendered the freestyle ace off of the Australian team for Gwangju. He’s looking to get back on track, starting with some solid racing against an international field here in Stanford.
For Miley’s part, the Scot made an appearance most recently at the British Summer Championships, putting up her best 400m IM outing since coming back from ankle surgery late last year.
Kathleen Dawson, too, is coming back from injury, with the University of Stirling backstroker getting under the minute mark once again in 59.99 at the aforementioned competition.
Although she’s representing the University of Arkansas, Anna Hopkin is another British swimmer ready to continue on from World Championships, with the 23-year-0ld having had the meet of her life in Gwangju. Hopkin logged a huge personal best in the women’s 50m free of 24.34 in the semi-finals before hitting 24.40 for 7th place overall in the final.
In the women’s 100m free, Hopkin also earned a lifetime best of 53.21 before anchoring the British women’s medley relay in a split of 52.65.
Mark Szaranek will bump into dozens of his NCAA teammates as a former Florida Gator. Now representing the University of Stirling, the 23-year-old is entered in the 200m fly, 200m free, 200m IM and 400m IM.
