My First Post

As this is my first blog on my new website I thought it would be good to briefly look back over the last couple of years……which have been amazing! My swimming has just gone from strength to strength and after winning bronze at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing last year got even better and was the highlight of my career so far.

My season started and ended breaking World Records. In Sheffield in March I broke the 400m free long course world record and broke the 400m free short course world record in Leeds in September. Then in between I won 3 medals at the world championships in Rome. It was a massive improvement from the year before and i enjoyed every minute of it.

So after such a great year I’m really looking forward to the year ahead starting with Commonwealth trials in Sheffield at the end of March.

I haven’t had a great winters training though with illness and injuries but now I’m back fighting fit and into hard training.

It’s going to be a really busy year but I’ll keep you updated on how things are going and how I get on.
