GCCG2018 – W400IM: Aimee Willmott (ENG) Halts Hannah Miley Triple By 0.16sec

Aimee Willmott - Team England

Never been done. And not yet, either: Scotland’s Hannah Miley, an historic three 400m medley Commonwealth crowns in her sights, raced all but stroke for stroke with Britain teammate, Aimee Willmott … and at the last stroke, it was Willmott who had the reach: 4:34.90 to 4:35.16. The first final on the first day at the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games to England. The bronze went to Australia’s Blair Evans in 4:38.23. Now starts the craft of a policy that has been described as discriminatory … Willmott and Miley did not win in personal best times, the criteria for them to keep their funding – yet they remain Britain’s top 2 by a wide margin. Fair play demands a rethink at British Swimming
