Edinburgh University Swimming and Water Polo

University of Edinburgh Success at Nationals

Edinburgh University proved themselves to be the best Scottish Club in terms of performance with their amazing success at Scottish Long Course Nationals. The University's Squad brought home 9 Scottish National Championship Tittles, 1 Gold Medal, made 24 Finals and slashed two Scottish Club Relay Records.

There wasn't a single club that came close to Edinburgh's stellar performance. This is proven by the fact that Uni squad obtained 23,194 FINA points based on the times that their swimmers obtained in 'A' finals. The next closest club, Warrender Baths, only obtained 17,289 FINA points followed by City of Glasgow with 10,895 FINA points.

Gilchrist Qualifies for Second Event in Rome

Kris Gilchrist has now secured his place in two events at the FINA World Championships in Rome later this summer following the conclusion of the 100m breaststroke, one of several outstanding races on Day 3 of The British Gas Scottish National Championships at Tollcross Park Leisure Centre in Glasgow.

Following the Trials in Sheffield in March, Gilchrist held the second place spot for the event, and went into the final hoping that his time of 1:00.98 would not be beaten by another athlete. 

For selection to the World Championships athletes either had to win at the British Gas Championships, which took place in Sheffield in March, or achieve the second fastest time over the two events. 

Gilchrist (Edinburgh University) was in fourth place at the half way mark and had to pull on all his strength and experience in the last 50m to challenge for the title.  The result went down to the touch and in the end it was University of Baths' Darren Mew who took gold, however, his time of 1:01.37 was slower than that of Gilchrist's in March securing Gilchrist his selection for the event in Rome.

Gilchrist won silver in 1:01.51 and Daniel Sliwinski of Gallica won bronze in 1:01.96.

Men miss medal by inches, finish fourth at BUCS championships

Despite playing below their typical level and being a bit wowed to play in a regulation 30M x 22 M pool, the men's team stays very competitive the whole way.   

Taken from the EUSU website by Craig Meek.   Note: it is not actually Antonio's last year...he just seems that old.    Also, the Manchester score was 4-13.  

Last weekend, EUSWPC rounded off a highly successful season with one of their best ever performances at the BUCS team finals. The swimmers came out on top, powering their way to snatch silver, while the men's water polo team fought hard but unluckily ended up just outside a medal position in 4th place.
