Perhaps having Adam Peaty in your training pool is catching when it comes to contagious speed on breaststroke but what’s for certain tonight is that Jocelyn Ulyett produced the upset of day 2 and what may remain the shocker of the British Championships by the time the water settles on Sunday night: 2:22.08 British record, 200m, for the fastest swim in the world this year among those with a clean record. It was not just the time: she kept at bay both Britain’s Olympic finalists of 2016, Molly Renshaw and Chloe Tutton, the latter locked out of world titles after fourth at Rio 2016

Looks like the organizers knew what they were doing when they scheduled the 100 breast as the last women’s event of thr chanps. I count five women with sub 1:07 potential. Clarke, Vassey, Ulyett, Tutton and O’Connor. Remarkable given it was a problem event a few years back.

Yes… it doubtless helped to have Ruta in the country as a constant reminder of what competitive really meant.
