Adlington back on form with 200m win at nationals


29 March 2010

Rebecca Adlington, Britain’s swimming heroine of the Beijing Olympics and one of the big home hopes in the pool for London 2012, returned to form today at the British Gas national championships in Sheffield when she cruised to victory in the 200m ahead of Jazmin Carlin and Jo Jackson, her freestyle rivals and British team-mates.

The talents of that trio bode well for Britain in two years’ time, not least in the 400m free and the  relays.  They face a showdown in the 400m on Friday. More here about today’s action from Sheffield, where the championships are doubling as qualifiers for the Europeans and the Commonwealth Games. And there’s a BBC clip here including a short interview with Adlington, and world champion backstroker explain why the Commonwealths matter.
