The 2019 Scottish Short Course National Championships are almost upon us, with the nation’s elite and amateur talent hitting the Royal Commonwealth Pool beginning on Friday, December 13th.
The decorated Scottish athlete ever at a Commonwealth Games, Duncan Scott, is expected to race in Edinburgh, with the 22-year-old having just earned the 200m free silver medal in Glasgow at this year’s European Short Course Championships. He was a member of the silver medal-winning mixed 4x50m freestyle relay for Great Britain, while the Stirling star also notched Scottish records in the 50m free and 100m free to add to his 200m IM British national record from the meet.
Both Scott McLay and Freya Anderson were on that relay as well, with both athletes set to compete at these Short Course Championships. Anderson was especially remarkable in Glasgow, having taken the 100m/200m free double gold ahead of such stalwarts as Italian Oykmpic icon Federica Pellegrini and Dutch record holder Femke Heemskerk.
Among the additional European Short Course Championships medalists set to compete in Edinburgh is Tom Dean, the relative newcomer who busted out the swim of his life to take 400m free silver in Glasgow. That represented the first senior international medal for Dean who placed 11th in the 200m IM at this summer’s long course World Championships in Gwangju, Korea.
Additional key athletes set to rock this weekend at these Scottish Championships include Ross Murdoch, Aimee Willmott, Craig Benson, Tain Bruce, Keanna MacInnes, Hannah Miley, Calum Jarvis, Stephen Milne, Cameron Kurle, Lucy Hope, Zak Aitchison, Katie Robertson, Kathleen Dawson, Cassie Wild, Tom Derbyshire, Kieran Bird, Danielle Huskisson, Emily Large, Nick Pyle, Mark Szaranek and Chloe Tutton.
