Wonder who is going to swim in Manchester. Most UK swimmers have been out of water for at least a month.

Manchester International meet, only for British swimmers who train at the National Centres/Funded athletes and swimmers on the swim England programme. British Swimming/Swim England have even asked international athletes who train at Loughborough over British Swimmers who have qualified for British Champs and need the practice. Didn’t think international swimmers could swim for Team GB!! Not fair giving them the chance and not the British/English swimmers.

Of course it is unfair. However, it is by my understanding an invitation only meet which means the fastest swimmers in the country should be invited to compete to raise the standard of competition? A lot of swimmers will have qualified for british champs as those meets are quite large. If they allowed all of those swimmers to compete here then they wouldn’t be able to keep everyone safe by following the covid restrictions I would have thought. Seems fair to me.

Totally agree SD642. You are spot on. Covid protocols restrict numbers and different home nation rules mean some can and cannot travel. Only athletes on the approved government return to training lists can compete at this time. All professional ‘international’ athletes are also allowed to compete in all sports in the UK subject to Covid restrictions.
