Brits BUCS Battle - Edinburgh vs Loughborough

15 November 2019

Candice and Tain
Candice Hall and Tain Bruce will go head to head this weekend at BUSC.

It's that time of year again when the best of British university swimmers come together to battle it out at BUCS Short Course to score points for their University. Returning to Sheffield for three days of competition there is sure to be some exceptional swimming, with the female points table expected to be too close to call.

Last year Loughborough University topped the medal table with a total of 125 points. The University of Edinburgh athletes were hot on their heels, finishing second with a total of 104 points. This year, these top two universities will compete again with some very fast F-Teamers representing each team!

Kat and Tain
Kat Greenslade and Tain Bruce are competing for the University of Edinburgh.

Representing the University of Edinburgh will be Tain Bruce and Kathryn Greenslade. Tain is set to have a very busy weekend, racing in the women's 50m, 100m and 200m Butterfly, as well as the 200m and 400m IM. Kat Greenslade will be looking to dominate the freestyle events, when she steps up to the blocks for the 100m, 200m and 400m races. She is also entered in the women's 100m and 200m Backstroke so keep a watch as Kat hits the water!

Loughborough University has a history of speedy BUCS swimmers and with F-Teamers Imogen Clark, Candice Hall, Jocelyn Ulyett and Charlotte Evans on the team, this year is no exception. Imogen will be racing in both the 50m and 100m Breaststroke, as well as the 50m Freestyle and the 50m Butterfly where she will no doubt be looking to bring home a couple of gold medals to match last year's success. Candice Hall will be looking to score big in the women's 200m and 400m IM as well as in the 200m and 400m Freestyle events. Charlotte Evans will be going head to head with Kat in the 100m and 200m Backstroke.
