Friday at EuroSwim is already coming to the boil after morning heats bubbled away and teed up more medal chances for Britain in the Tollcross pool.
After sealing medals on Thursday night, Duncan Scott, Vladimir Morozov and Kira Toussaint returned to the water and showed their class once again.
Here are three quick takeaways from the morning’s racing.
Flo and Vlad face off
Scottish primary school kids lining the main stand were enthralled by the splash and dash of the men’s 50m freestyle heats, setting up a titanic tussle tonight.
They watched as France’s world record holder Florent Manaudou and Russia’s Championship record holder Vladimir Morozov tore up Tollcross.
Manaudou, who won 50m gold at London 2012, qualified quickest in 21.06 but fresh from relay feats on Thursday night, Morozov was just two hundredths back.
Can Morozov add to his haul of three gold medals already this week, or will the Frenchman resist? The semi-final at 17:00 and final at 19:03 will be unmissable.
The good times are rolling for GB in Glasgow and the strength in depth of the host nation was showcased on Friday morning.
Having missed out over 50m, Molly Renshaw advanced in the 100m breaststroke and it was third time lucky for James Wilby over the same distance.
Laura Stephens, at her first international short-course meet, bossed her 200m butterfly heat, beating Olympic bronze medallist Borglarka Kapas to the wall in 2:07.14.
And such was Britain’s strength in the men’s 200m individual medley, early medal heroes Max Litchfield and Tom Dean finished in the top 11 but were eliminated.
Duncan Scott continues to take heat swimming to another level, blasting his freestyle leg to break the British record and qualify quickest, joined by impressive youngster Joe Litchfield in the final.
Friday night’s alright
We’re fully loaded for Friday night at EuroSwim and the crowds will descend on the East End once again to see nine champions crowned.
The women’s 100m freestyle final will keep us spellbound from 17:07, with Brits Freya Anderson and Anna Hopkin hoping to muscle in on the medals.
Another teenage star in Kliment Kolesnikov will be firing in the 100m backstroke, while Siobhan-Marie O’Connor takes on the might of Katinka Hosszu in the medley.
With the stunning endurance of world record holder Gregorio Paltrinieri and a relay rounding off the evening, we’re in for a treat this evening.
