After a disappointing European championships a couple of weeks ago we now have some more encouraging news re Michael Jamieson’s progress towards the Olympics.
Over the Bank Holiday weekend he competed in the Mare Nostrum series which is held on the Mediterranean cities of Barcelona, Canet and Monaco. He had a tremendous swim in Barcelona picking up silver in the 100m breaststroke and gold in the 200m breaststroke! He may compete this weekend in Canet and from there will head off to Majorca for a training camp.
Many of the British swimmers are in Majorca for warm weather training – this will be the last intensive camp before the Games.
I’m sure Michael will be much encouraged with these later performances. More from him soon.
