McEvoy on target going into swim trials

  • McEvoy on target going into swim trials

    Cameron McEvoy is ahead of where he thought he would be as April's Olympic swim team trials near.

After claiming two personal best times at the Perth Aquatic Super Series this weekend, Cameron McEvoy won't be adjusting his training methods.

He says he doesn't see the point of changing something that appears to be working so well.

The 21-year-old took time off both his 100m and 50m freestyle and took out the 200m race on his way to being named Male Swimmer of the Meet.

He says he is ahead of where he thought he would be at this stage of the year, giving him confidence going into April's Australian Olympic swim team trials in Adelaide.

"This comp is not going to change the way I am attacking training," he said.

"But it will always be in the back of my mind as a comfort, knowing I am where I am and knowing I have a little extra time to go home, go to the workshop and work on it and see what I can come back with.

"I know I have improved in leap and bounds at training, but that leaves unknown in competition, so it's nice tocome out and finally know where I sit."

The 100m time of 47.56sec is the one that will draw the most attention , as it would have been fast enough to win him a gold medal at the World Championships last year.

But despite his personal best inthe 50m event, he doesn't think that the best in the world at the distance would be too concerned.

"I wouldn't say so, because although it was a PB, it was still 0.64 behind Florent Manaudou, the current World Champion," he said.

"In a 50m race, that's miles. Hehas time to finish, have a coffee and watch me finish. But it's nice that mymomentum is still going and I am on the steady improvement."
