Rising Star: Craig Benson

Former Rising Star Success!


Well done to former G+S Rising Star Craig Benson who was second in the 200m at FINA Dubai World Cup event earlier this month.


Craig followed this up with 3 new short course records at the  British Universities and Colleges Sports (BUCS) championships. Craig kicked off the meet with a new BUCS and Scottish record in the 50m breaststroke, he is now the first Scottish Swimmer to break the 27 second mark with a time of 26.84.  Craig went on to win the 200m breaststroke and then complete his hat trick of titles in the 100m breaststroke.


The former G+S Rising Star is now a rising threat at World level and is currently ranked in the Top 3 in the World at all disciplines and 1st in both the 100 and 200m.


The support G+S provided has no doubt played it’s part in Craig continued success.
