Willis warms up with PB in Poland
8th December 2011
Andrew Willis admitted his 100m Breaststroke personal best was the perfect appetiser ahead of his 200m challenge at the European Short Course Swimming Championships in Sczcecin, Poland.
The British Gas ITC Bath swimmer clocked a personal best 59.35 in the 100m Breaststroke heats to reach the semi finals on his international short course debut.
And while Willis' semi final time of 59.50 wasn't enough to see him progress to the final, he insisted he was pleased with his form ahead of his favoured 200m Breaststroke later in the week.
"I would've liked to have gone a bit quicker," admitted Willis. "This morning I was pretty much all out because the depth of the field is really tough so I got out this morning with a PB and I'm really happy with it.
"It's a good experience to race tough this weekend.
"It's always good to have an event before your main one - the stroke is a little bit different but it's always good to get your legs going and get into the swing of breaststroke."
