British Trials over, 38 selected for Home Games


As listed here on, after 8 days of trials at the London Aquatics Centre, Great Britain selected 38 swimmers for its home Games squad, with relays to be confirmed and additions to be made at the ASA in Sheffield in June. On the last day of Trials, Daniel Fogg became 3rd Brit ever under 15 minutes in the 1500 free with a 14:55.30, with David Davies also qualifying in 15:00.73. Fran Halsall matched Inge De Bruijn‘s fastest ever 50m freestyle in textiles with a 24.13, and Amy Smith also qualified with a 24.80. On an interesting sidenote, Halsall, Hannah Miley and Sarah Sjöström all wore Arena Powerskin Carbon Pro suits at this meet. See video from the 50 freestyle here on
