Jamieson confirms World Cup intentions

9th October 2013

Olympic silver medallist Michael Jamieson is one of a handful of British swimmers set to compete across the 2013 FINA World Cup tour this autumn.

The British Gas ITC Bath swimmer, who is part of the European team taking on the USA at the Duel in the Pool in Glasgow this December, will travel to the legs in Moscow (12 – 13 October), Dubai (17 – 18 October), Doha (20 – 21 October), Singapore (5 - 6 November), Tokyo (9 - 10 November) and Beijing (13 - 14 November).

Jamieson’s training partner Sophie Allen – who used six medals at last year’s World Cups as a catalyst for a successful season which saw her reach the 200m Individual Medley final on her World Championship debut – will join him at all six.

Five-time World Championship medallist Liam Tancock will compete in Dubai and Doha while Georgia Davies and Fran Halsall – a World Championship medallist in Barcelona earlier this year – have also confirmed their entry for the Dubai leg.

Halsall will then go on to compete in Singapore, Tokyo and Beijing alongside Jamieson, Allen, Roberto Pavoni, Lizzie Simmonds, Siobhan-Marie O'Connor and World Short Course champion Hannah Miley.

Finally, teenage prospects James Guy and Ben Proud - who both made their World Championship debuts in Barcelona earlier this season - will build on their elite level experience with appearances in Moscow (Proud), Singapore (Guy) and Tokyo (Guy).
