08 April 2014

University of Bath graduate Michael Jamieson set qualification times for the Scotland Commonwealth Games team for both the 100m and 200m breaststroke at the Scottish National Open Swimming Championships.

Jamieson, silver medallist for Scotland in the 200m breaststroke at the Commonwealths in Delhi four years ago, posted a qualification time of 2:08.01 to win the 200m breaststroke final.

The Sports Performance graduate, who trains at British Swimming’s National Centre for Swimming at the University of Bath, followed that up with second place in the 100m breaststroke final in 1:08.82.

Chemical Engineering student Eamon Rivers came seventh in the 100m butterfly in 56.36 and eighth in the 50m butterfly final in 25.24.

The championships took place at the Tollcross International Swimming Centre in Glasgow, which is also the swimming venue for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.

It was the first opportunity for Scottish swimmers to achieve qualification times for the Scotland team for the Glasgow 2014 Games.
