Good Luck For London 2012

March 5, 2012

Scottish athletes across many of the 17 Commonwealth Games sports are busy competing for selection for the London 2012 Olympic Games.

If the recent amazing display by the legendary Sir Chris Hoy in the fabulous new state of the art velodrome is anything to go by, it is going to be an exciting summer of sport for Scots on Team GB. It also serves to build the anticipation for a home Commonwealth Games in Glasgow in 2014.

Good luck to all our athletes aiming for Team GB. We look forward to following their progress, cheering them on and applying lessons learnt for Glasgow 2014.

Athletes qualified so far:

Congratulations to Commonwealth Games gold medallists Robbie Renwick (400m freestyle) and Hannah Miley (400m individual medley) who qualified for London 2012 on day one of the British Swimming Championships. Great news also came on day two when triple Commonwealth Youth Games gold medallist Craig Benson finished second and met the qualification time for the 100m breaststroke at just 17 years of age.

Later in the week Robbie also qualified in the 200m freestyle and Hannah added the 200m individual medley place to her schedule. Caitlin McClatchey booked her slot in the 4x200m freestyle relay, whilst Michael Jamieson, edged out in the 100m breaststroke claimed his Olympic place in his preferred 200m breastroke event.
