Battle of SwimBritain

The Result

The Battle of SwimBritain took place on Saturday 17th May at Loughborough University. Swimmers from England, Scotland and Wales went head-to-head completing a 250m leg of our SwimBritain course.

There could only be one winner, and England eventually came out on top in a very tightly fought contest, clocking an impressive time of 11m 28s for their team's collective 1000m.
Hot on England's tails were Scotland who came second in 11m 35s, with Wales third in a time of 12m 10s.

Course records

There were also new course records over 250m for both men & women, with Scotland's Robbie Renwick clocking 02:42, beating last year's record - set by Chris Walker-Hebborn - by an impressive 9 seconds.
England's Aimee Willmott set the new women's 250m record, with an equally impressive time of 02:54 - beating the existing record by an astonishing 26 seconds!
This year is a huge year for British Swimming and the Home Nations. Following the excitement of 2012's swimming, this is the first chance for British Swimming to show us their drive for this summer's events.
