Olympic silver medallist Michael Jamieson has been named as one of five University of Bath-based swimmers selected by British Swimming for the World Championships from July 28 – August 4 in Barcelona.
Jamieson trains, a Sports Performance student, trains at the British Gas ITC on campus and for the Scot the prospect of the World Championships, after a difficult preparation for the national championships, is an exciting one.
“I was surprised by my swims at the nationals after a couple of ropey months leading into Sheffield,” said the Scot. “But those performances have given me renewed confidence for the World Championships.
“It’s a very different approach for Britain’s swimmers this year with the trials coming so close to the World Championships but overall I’m pleased with the progress made.
“I now have a training camp where I’ll work on my final preparations and I’m looking forward to challenging for a sub 2:07.00 time in Barcelona.”
Jamieson will be joined by his Bath training partners Chris Walker-Hebborn, Andrew Willis, teenager Siobhan Marie O’Connor and Sophie Allen.
