National – Centenary Year (1988) – European Swimming Cup
European Swimming Cup
9 – 10 December 1988
Royal Commonwealth Pool, Edinburgh
This competition was always a climax of our calendar year in European swimming when the best in each Nation came together to compete in the exciting Short Course (25m) programme of events.
It was been held in that format since 1980. The emphasis was on winning points for the team, therefore extra incentive in every event.
In 1988, most of Europe’s top swimmers came from their efforts in the Seoul Olympics determined to both beat their previous best individual performances and try to win the coveted European Cup Trophy for their country.
The Swimming Cup was staged previously in Great Britain at Barnet in 1981. There was always a great demand to host this competition due to the high regard that it earned throughout Europe, our bid was successful due to the excellent facilities that we had to offer at the Royal Commonwealth Pool.
Over 350 competitors and officials will participate.
