5 Brits secure Olympic spot on 1st night of trials


Hannah Miley swam her fastest 400 meter IM in a textile suit with a time of 3:43.67, and was joined on the squad by Aimee Willmott in 4:37.48. Roberto Pavoni and Joe Robuck filled the two slots in the men’s equivalent with 4:12.43 and 4:14.48 respectively. Robbie Renwick qualified in the 400 freestyle with a Scottish record of 3:46.73, while David Carry’s 3:48.36 was inside the FINA A standard of 3:48.92 but 0.23 seconds outside GB’s harder standard for 2nd place qualifier. So he’ll have to try again at the ASA Championships in Sheffield in June. Read sportinglife.com and more indepth SwimmingWorld Magazine
