In the run up to the 2016 Olympic Games, Tollcross once again showcased its prestige in hosting world class events as the British Swimming Championships came to town.
The Championships acted as the selection meet for the Games in Rio and afterwards, the British Olympic Association announced a team of 26 athletes who had sealed their spots on the plane to Rio.
For many of the stars who now regularly represent Great Britain on the international stage, this was their first foray into the Olympics.
Glasgow were treated to some phenomenal performances as Adam Peaty headlined opening night, the World and European champion clinched victory in the men’s 100m breaststroke.
Peaty had booked his place on his first Olympic team alongside fellow debutants James Guy, who secured 400m freestyle victory, and Jazz Carlin.
Meanwhile, home favourite Hannah Miley won the women’s 400m individual medley to earn her place on her third Olympic team.
Other swimmers to wow the crowd at Tollcross were Max Litchfield, Siobhan-Marie O’Connor and Ben Proud who all won their events and reached the qualifying standard.
Scotland were well represented in the team as four University of Stirling stars got the nod in the shape of Ross Murdoch, Robbie Renwick, Duncan Scott and Craig Benson.
Edinburgh’s Camilla Hattersley and Dan Wallace also secured their places on the British team to fly out to the Olympics.
The foundations for a highly successful summer were laid in Glasgow and Great Britain went on to clinch six medals in Rio: one gold and five silver – their biggest-ever haul in the pool.
