Georgia Davies Delivers Turkish Delight For 59.3 Best 100 Back After Tapping Into Energy

Georgia Davies by Patrick B. Kraemer

When James Gibson landed the job of head coach at the Energy Standard Swimming Club, one of his charges, Welsh Commonwealth champion Georgia Davies, wondered: what next? A Turkish delight, was the answer tonight, going off the lifetime best of 59.34 she delivered to retain the British 100m backstroke crown for a clear world-titles consideration time when selectors meet at the end of the national championships at Ponds Forge, Sheffield, come Sunday night. Also in the waiting lounge are James GU y, on 1:55.91 in the 200m butterfly, and Jazz Carlin, on 8:30 in the 800m freestyle

Something wrong with the report on the women’s 100 back, Craig. Results show Dawson was second in 1:00.22, Fullalove, a further 0.3 back…

Yes, David, the results showed the wrong result for a short time… and I took them from that. I corrected it soon after but was writing 200br when you left our note… thanks v much for the alert.


GB need a backstroke leg for the relay. With that, they have an excellent chance of winning. CWH needs to step up, 54.24 is not encouraging.
I take it that GB is not taking a 4x200m free ladies squad, as Carlin would therefore have made the squad. If she absolutely has to make a consideration time, I don’t fancy her chances given her level of preparation.
