National performance director Michael Scott has been encouraged by the performances of the men at the British Swimming Championships in Sheffield.

The likes of Rebecca Adlington, Joanne Jackson, Gemma Spofforth, Francesca Halsall and Keri-Anne Payne have taken prominence in recent years but Scott believes there were encouraging signs at the competition at Ponds Forge which ended last night, pointing to Adam Brown and Roberto Pavoni, who both claimed national titles. "The females raised the bar and our job is to make the males go with them and we are starting to see that," said Scott.
