Edinburgh International to provide British Champs prep

12 Mar 2020

A host of Britain's Tokyo 2020 hopefuls are set to be in action at the Edinburgh International Swim Meet this weekend (13th-15th March). 

The Royal Commonwealth Pool is the stage for the competition, which will provide athletes with another key preparatory opportunity ahead of next month's British Swimming Championships, which double as the Olympic trials. 

University of Stirling man Duncan Scott - who took home four golds from last month's McCullagh International - will hope to continue his fine form across numerous events, with the Olympic and World Championship medallist set to compete on each of the three days, including in the Men's 100m and 200m Freestyle, as well as the 50m Freestyle skins event. 

Freya Anderson began the year with a trio of titles in Flanders, and she is another who could be scheduled for a busy weekend, as Britain's elite swimmers look to test out the hard work they have been putting in in training so far this season. 

Siobhan-Marie O'Connor and Molly Renshaw are down to race in the Women's 100m Breaststroke on Friday, with the Men's event on Saturday set to pit Adam Peaty, James Wilby and Ross Murdoch against each other once again.
