It’s noticeable from the results and start lists, just how concentrated at certain centers talent is becoming in British swimming. It’s a pity we won’t get a full strength 4×100 medley to finish the championships. For the men at least it would be a tight 3-way race:
Bath: Walker-Hebburn, Attwood, Guy, Jarvis
Loughboro: Ellwood, Peatty, Greenbank, Barrett
Stirling: Boldison, Murdoch, Brodie, Scott
Loughboro have a fly problem which means Greenbank switches, but then they do have Peatty…
Who would your money be on Craig?
