  2. Can Wilby rival Peaty at Tokyo 2020?

    James Wilby and Adam Peaty

    He won more Commonwealth breaststroke medals than Adam Peaty last year and has the potential to better the Olympic champion's haul at Tokyo 2020 - but few outside the swimming world have heard of Britain's James Wilby.

    So spectacular were Peaty's 100m breaststroke record-breaking efforts at the 2018 Europeans and this year's World Championships that Wilby's second-place finishes were largely overlooked.

    However, the Yorkshireman's progress over the past 18 months has been incredible, with victory in the 200m breaststroke in the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games a significant highlight last year.

    And Wilby believes he can challenge for medals in both the 100m and 200m breaststroke events at Tokyo 2020 - something Peaty has ruled out.

    This week, the 26-year-old returns to Glasgow for the European Short Course Championships - the city and pool where he made his international debut at the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

    "I have brilliant memories from racing in Glasgow and have never lost the drive or motivation I had despite what's happened," Wilby told BBC Sport.

  3. Ones to watch in Glasgow - Men

    Duncan Scott

    Kliment Kolesnikov (Russia – 200 Backstroke): Won four medals in Copenhagen two years ago and might be the first medal winner in Glasgow. Will also be in the 50 and 100m backstroke and could start the Russian squad off in the 4x50m event too. And he’s still only 19.

    Duncan Scott (Great Britain, Men's 200m Freestyle): One for the home crowd to cheer on, Scott is in rare form at the moment and he will need to be if he wants to beat Lithuania’s defending champion Danas Rapšys. Scott, who made the podium in the World Championships this year, beat Rapsys in Glasgow at the European Championships last summer.

    Kristian Gkolomeev (Greece, 50m Freestyle): Won silver in Glasgow in the longer pool in 2018, and is now competing with the added turn on the shorter course. His father was a Bulgarian swim star. At 6ft 8in tall, he is arguably halfway to the other end of the pool by the time he surfaces from his dive.

    Fabio Scozzoli (Italy, 50m Breaststroke): Now 31 years of age but not finished yet, Scozzoli won the world short course title in Istanbul in 2012 and repeated that four years later in Canada. He finished second behind Adam Peaty in 2018 but beat him into third two years ago in Copenhagen and broke the European record in the process.

    Florent Manaudou (France, 50m Freestyle & Butterfly): A London 2012 winner, Manaudou had a career year in 2014, winning a combined 11 medals (seven of them gold) at the European Championships and World Short Course Championships. He sprinkled a couple of world records in there too. A recent convert to the ISL ranks.

  4. Ones to watch in Glasgow - Women

    Georgia Davies

    Federica Pellegrini (Italy): A veteran of the Athens Olympics in 2004, where she won 200m freestyle silver, Pellegrini is nicknamed the Lioness of Verona and her career highlight was her 200m freestyle win in Beijing in 2008. She says she will give it all up after Tokyo next year.

    Katinka Hosszu (Hungary): Three times an Olympic champion, Hungary's finest is known as the Iron Lady and her ISL team, operating out of Budapest, carries that name. She holds the 100m and 200m IM records and the same is true in the 100m and 200m backstroke. She finished the last Short Course European Championships with six golds.

    Simona Quadarella (Italy): Just 20 years old, she dominated the distance events in Glasgow in 2018, winning the 400m, 800m and 1500m titles. She will be competing in the 400m and 800m this time around.

    Georgia Davies (Great Britain): Probably Britain's best hope of a women's medal, Davies is a potential podium spot for the 50m and 100m backstroke. She won bronzes in China and Canada In the 100m event. She's also going in the mixed and women's 4x50m medley relay teams.

    Pernille Blume (Denmark): The Olympic champion from Rio in the 50m freestyle has found wins tough to come by since, but remains a medal contender and certainly the fastest woman swimmer that her country has ever produced. She was the winner of four medals at the last European Short Course Championships.
