The Bath University swimmer said, “I’m here off the back of some really solid training so I’m pleased with that. Everything is coming together and I’m really looking forward to Kazan.”
Willmott (London Aquatics) looked dominant in the 400m IM taking and took a deserved victory. “I’m pleased with that. I started really hurting as the race went on and I am just happy to have come through for the win,” said Willmott.
“There’s a lot of support here amongst the swimmers. We’re all still in a really hard block of training but we are doing our best to encourage each other to push through until we start resting up for the Worlds.”
