“I’m encouraged with my times from the weekend, my 100m freestyle was by far my best swim & it showed that I’m approaching the sort of speeds I was swimming before I got back in the pool last year after 6 months out. There’s much to improve on so my times will ultimately continue to drop. The Europeans are about 4 weeks away now so training will become very specific in the lead up to those before I taper ahead of London. Many thanks to Jones & Co who made this weekend possible.”
