“After the last Olympics I had to seriously decide whether or not I wanted to try for another Olympics. I made up my mind to give it a shot and it was well worth all the hard work,” he said. “I am looking towards breaking all the previous records I held up to this year, starting with the 100m free here in London,” he said. “This second Olympics will gauge how far I have come in the past four years, and hopefully will give me the push I need to continue to train for the next Olympics and getting further up the world ranking.” – Pacific Daily News
