Commonwealth champions Ross Murdoch and Ben Proud are among an incredible line-up for the 2015 British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) Championships at Ponds Forge, Sheffield this weekend.
The addition of guest entries means the start lists read like a who’s who of British Swimming stars with Adam Peaty, Jazz Carlin, Siobhan-Marie O’Connor and Chris Walker-Hebborn just a handful of the talent on show.
But while the guest entries won’t be permitted to compete in finals, there will still be plenty of world class swimming to follow in the finals sessions.
Murdoch will be competing long course for the first time in 2015, having landed Commonwealth gold over 200m Breaststroke and European silvers over 100m and 200m Breast last term.
Commonwealth bronze medallist over 200m Breast Andrew Willis could provide the main rivalry for the Scot although Murdoch is only swimming the 50m and 100m in Sheffield.
Proud also enjoyed a year to remember in 2014, sealing the Commonwealth titles over 50m Freestyle and 50m Butterfly and the 20-year old lines up in both this weekend.
Among the other university entries are Commonwealth and European silver medallist Aimee Willmott, Commonwealth bronze medallist Adam Barrett, European bronze medallist Jay Lelliott and IPC World champion Hannah Russell.
