Qualifying times, event schedule and conditions released for #BSC19

The schedule, conditions and qualifying times have been published by British Swimming ahead of the British Swimming Championships 2019, due to be held in Glasgow at Tollcross International Swimming Centre.

The schedule includes reverse men’s and women’s distance events and has been designed to provide a full six days of fast-paced swimming action.

The event will see medallists from this year’s European Championships, along with the rest of Great Britain’s elite, competing for title of British Champion and qualification into major senior and junior international events later in the year.

For the British Swimming Championships 2019, there will be a three-final format; Open Final, Transition Final and Junior Final. The Open Final will be contested by the eight fastest qualifiers, irrespective of age.

The Transition Final then serves as an opportunity for the next fastest eight competitors (born 1996 or later) to contest a final round. Finally, the Junior Final has been set to mirror the ages of the World and European Junior Championships, allowing those age-group swimmers the chance to swim a final if they have not achieved entry into either the Open or Transition.
