GB swimmer Renshaw appeals against Olympic exclusion


A team behind swimmer Molly Renshaw is appealing against her exclusion from Team GB after the squad for London 2012 was announced on Sunday. At the first stage of trials in London in March, Stacey Tadd won the 200m breaststroke within the required FINA A time to book one spot, but outside the tougher requirement of world-ranked top 16 time. At the second trials in Sheffield last week, Renshaw won the race but finished 0.83 outside the qualifying standard – again the FINA A time. The petition claims Renshaw has been penalised because while they complied with British Swimming practice that her primary event for the summer would be the European Junior Championships, this weakened her performance in Sheffield last week. Renshaw is a clear favorite to win the European Juniors 200 breaststroke, see the start list. Read more here on MailOnline
