2019 EDINBURGH INTERNATIONAL SWIM MEET

The Edinburgh International Swim Meet is truly living up to the ‘international’ part of its namesake, as athletes from Spain, Denmark and beyond will be joining a strong British contingency at the Royal Commonwealth Pool this weekend. The meet is FINA-sanctioned as a qualifying meet for this year’s World Championships, while it is also licensed with World Para Swimming where times can be used to claim records, as well as enter WPS World Series Events.

The 100m and 200m events in all strokes and 200m IM will be swim with open, B and junior finals, while the 50m events in all strokes will be swum in a skins-format for the open age category. The skins will go from field to 8 swimmers then to 6, 4, 3, 2 until a final winner is determined.

A couple of athletes will be making their comebacks to racing in Edinburgh this weekend, including home nation Olympian Hannah MileyMiley underwent ankle surgery late last year. and has been steadily increasing her training load and racing repertoire on her run to Gwangju. She’s entered in a typical-monster schedule of 7 events here, including the 200m fly, 200m free, 400m free, 100m breast, 200m breast, 200m IM and 400m IM.

Danish relay medalist from Rio, Jeanette Ottesenhad been out of the pool for several months since the birth of her daughter in December 2017. She’s been chipping away at getting back to her prime, including competing domestically periodically since last summer. In July 2018, Ottesen put up a very respectable 26.19 50m free/26.75 50m fly combo in Odense, but has already laid waste to those marks as the time passes.
