McGuckin helped Scotland secure a new national record and finish first place in their heat, finishing in 3.19.60, enough to secure a place at Tollcross international pool this evening.

Also qualifying for finals this morning was Michael Jamieson and Ross Murdoch who are competing in the 100m breaststroke final after finishing in the gold and silver places in last night’s 200m breaststroke final.
