I knew I was in good shape but sometimes it takes me a few meets to get going.“So, I was happy to come out and perform really well a few days ago. Hopefully with a bit more training and a bit more hard work, we can push to faster times.“The Europeans will be really exciting, it will be great to get out there in a championship again. I love championships.“It is the most fun for me, so it will be really exciting to get out there and perform with heats, semi-finals and a final again.”
