James Guy’s 200m freestyle world-title defence and Britain’s 4x200m free follow-up to gold in 2015 got several strokes closer this morning: Guy checked into lane 2 for the final on the last day of British Championships in Sheffield, the pace set half a second ahead of him in an earlier heat by Duncan Scott, the Scot who delivered a 47.90 scorcher in the 100m this week. If solo berths for the World Championships in Budapest are up for grabs this evening, all eyes on the battle for berths on the 4x200m free relay two years on from an historic victory in Kazan. Dan Wallace, one of those at the heart of Britain’s success in the past two years, including Olympic silver in Rio, is out, while one of the winners from 2015 who missed the Rio cut, Calum Jarvis, is in for the fight.
