Live coverage of day six finals of the 2016 British Nationals. Hit refresh for the latest coverage.

Women’s 100 breast

Siobhan-Marie O’Connor clinched another FINA A cut with a win in the women’s 100-meter breast.

O’Connor, who already shot to second in the world in the women’s 200-meter IM to secure a spot on the Olympic roster yesterday, took the 100 breast title in 1:07.15. That put her 17th in the world overall, bettering her 1:07.19 from prelims.

Sarah Vasey placed second in a time of 1:07.50, under the FINA A cut but still up to Britain’s convoluted selection process on whether or not she will be picked up for Rio.

Chloe Tutton (1:07.61), Molly Renshaw (1:08.34), Corrie Scott (1:08.70), Kathryn Johnstone (1:09.41), Rachael Wilson (1:09.42) and Katie Matts (1:09.44) also swam in the finale.
