Will Michael swim again today? That’s the decision the GB swim team manager has to make.
As he’s Team GB’s best 100m breaststroke swimmer of the Games, the decision boils down to whether to use his form and experience in the heats to [hopefully] get the team through to the final, or to rest him and give Craig Benson an opportunity to shine and gain some useful experience for future events.
Although the team lineup has to be declared officially, there probably won’t be time for it to be announced ahead of the this morning’s heats. Watch this space!
If the team does make the final, then Michael will definitely be swimming as everyone swims their best possible team then.
Here’s the broadcast details for your information, both are on BBC3 and BBC HD:
- Heats Friday 3rd August at 11:49
- Final Saturday 4th August at 20:27
Go Team GB!!!!
