As exciting as the 2018 Commonwealth Games are in their own right, the competition serves as a selection meet of sorts for British Swimming’s European Championships squad. Per the qualification criteria, the first and second highest placed British swimmer in each individual Olympic event at the 2018 Commonwealth Games will be selected for the Euro C’ships, provided the athlete meets the minimum qualification times.
You can view the table of qualification times below, while reading the official Selection Criteria in its entirety here.
The 2018 European Championships are being hosted by Glasgow, Scotland and slated for August 12th – August 20th.
As such, throughout the Commonwealth Games we’ll be keeping a European Championships British team tracker, just to keep a running list of those highest placed Brits having clocked QTs in Australia this week. Here’s how the squad shapes up thus far, knowing swimmers may opt out of swimming the event and/or additional swimmers may be added at coaches’ discretion.
Women’s 400m IM qualifiers – Aimee Willmott (4:34.90), Hannah Miley (4:35.16)
Men’s 400m free qualifiers – James Guy (3:45.32), Daniel Jervis (3:48.08)
Women’s 200m free qualifiers – Eleanor Faulkner (1:57.72), Holly Hibbott (1:58.55)
