The Harrow meet didn’t go well at all for Madison. Illness led to an early departure and weak performances throughout. Considerable misses of previously established PB times and very little improvement, that was our Harrow experience this year. There was a small improvement on the 200 free and an expected but not as large as possible improvement on the 100 IM.
No swimmer can always be on top form and don’t worry if a swimmer has to admit defeat through illness. Swimmers can only try their best and if the will is strong but the body says no, then it’s home-time and rest until things get better.
