James Guy surged to the top of the world in the men’s 200-meter free with a British Olympic qualifying time at the 2016 British Nationals.
Guy clocked in with a 1:45.19, just missing his own British record of 1:45.14 from the 2015 World Championships.
That swim shot him ahead of Kosuke Hagino’s 1:45.50 from the Japanese Championships in the world rankings, and beat the British Olympic qualifying time of 1:45.91.
Stephen Milne (1:47.15), Robert Renwick (1:47.23) and Duncan Scott (1:47.31) set themselves up for potential relay duty in the men’s 800-meter free relay.
Cameron Kurle (1:47.82), Ieuan Lloyd (1:48.23), Daniel Wallace (1:48.50) and Nicholas Grainger (1:48.53) also competed in the finale.
