“Not everyone will be tapered and some swimmers will be in the hard stage of their training cycle so they will have to swim tough but I know our swimmers will give their best on the day.

“We will go there as a strong team and give everything we can to the meet.

“It will be an exciting start to the new quadrennial cycle for the team.”
