Hi Craig, off subject but did you see that Siobhan Mari O’Connor posted a 1:06.34 100 breast UK record at the weekend?
I wonder if the GB selectors are regretting not picking a 100 fly specialist because a 1:05 breaststroke leg from O’Connor would be quite useful!

David Brooks

A few other decent swims in Scotland too. O’Connor popped a 2:09 in her main event while Molly Renshaw’s 2:23 also stood out.


Thanks for the info. Great breakdowns of the Olympic year in progress.


Bronte Campbell 52.5 not on the all time top ten in textile list?

Craig Lord

Not on that measure, gheko: her 52.41 comes in a point beyond that top 10. This isn’t a top 10 performances list… it measures the top 10 2016 performances that carry the biggest points (her 52.06 affects the status of her other swims 🙂

Craig Lord

Thanks David. It helps to make the article live :

Sorry, I’m very new to this kind of thing 🙂


Craig,Bronte not Cate, 52.58 at Aus Nationals!

Craig Lord

Yes, same scenario, 52.5 being slower than 52.4, gheko 🙂

The positive thing about the compiled lists is approx 10 countries are mentioned…..good for the sport that so many countries have legit chances for GOLD
