Sunday at EuroSwim: Morozov and Scott bid for glory

Sunday evening at the Tollcross International Swimming Centre promises to bring the LEN European Short Course Swimming Championships to a thrilling crescendo as the medals are decided.

The fifth and final day of action will begin in the morning as European swimming heavyweights battle it out in the remaining heats to earn their shot at podium glory.

Semi-finals and finals will then dominate the order of the day during a blockbuster last session, which will see no fewer than ten gold medals awarded in Glasgow.

The women’s 200m breaststroke gets the medal rush up and running before the women’s and men’s 4x50m medley relay brings the curtain down on five enthralling days in the pool.

Who to look out for?

Anna Hopkin will be among the Brits bidding for medals on the final evening as the Commonwealth Games bronze medallist competes in the women’s 50m freestyle.

Home favourite Scott McLay, a burgeoning talent on the Scottish swimming scene, will also have plenty of support when he continues his challenge in the men’s 100m freestyle.

He will face stiff competition from compatriot Duncan Scott, though, who will not be short of fans in his own backyard as the Glasgow 22-year-old attempts to climb the podium.

The double Olympic silver medallist has been in excellent form this year and after breaking his own national record at the British Championships, he will be confident of adding to his medal haul.

Breaststroke specialist Molly Renshaw will also fancy her chances in the 200m final, where she will hope to improve on her bronze medal from last year’s European Championships.

Arguably the most intriguing race of the evening though will see Russian sensation Vladimir Morozov contend for the 100m individual medley title against defending champion Marco Orsi.

Morozov is the world record holder in the event and will be gunning to take down his Italian rival, who claimed the gold medal in the event two years ago with a national record.

Italy will also be hoping Federica Pellegrini comes good in the women’s 400m freestyle before the fast and furious 4x50m medley relay finals close out the event.
