By 1st March 2009 Official News, Swim No Comments

Rebecca will be competing in her first major competition since the Beijing Olympics when she races at the British Championships which are combining as World Long Course Trials in Sheffield from March 16-20th.
This will be the first domestic event since Beijing where all of her GB rivals will be fully prepared and looking to gain a place on the team for the Worlds in Rome in late July.

The winner of each event in Sheffield will automatically be selected for Rome, with the second place finishers posting a time which could be beaten at the final qualification event in Glasgow 25-28th June, where the second competitor in each event will be selected.

Rebecca’s potential schedule for the meet is as follows:

16th March: Day 1 – 400m Freestyle Heat and Final
17th March: Day 2 – 200m Freestyle Heat and Semi Final
18th March: Day 3 – 800m Freestyle Heat and 200m Freestyle Final
19th March: Day 4 – 800m Freestyle Final
