Glasgow Grand Prix

By KM

After a week training with the GB squad in Loughborough, Nic Charlesworth proved she was on form at the Glasgow Grand Prix last weekend.

Charlesworth swam her way to two finals in the hard fought gala, which was the final chance for swimmers to shine before the squad is selected for next month’s World Championships.

The City of Cambridge swimmer was just outside the medals in the 200m IM, finishing fourth with 2.21.62 at Glasgow’s Tollcross pool, and claimed fifth with a three second PB on 4.57.54 in the final of the 400m IM.

All eyes will now be on the British Swimming selectors.

Charlesworth was at Glasgow with coach Tim Westlake, who’d just returned from coaching the GB squad’s freestyle camp, also held at Loughborough.

He said: “The standard of swimming at Glasgow was about as high as it gets at a national event, given the level of the competitors, and Nic acquitted herself extremely well.”

Ends.
