Good old Derby, here we go again. I found that Madison’s swimming spirits were fully activated after last year’s Mel Marshall Swiminspirations swimming camp in Derby. Even though, I would have wanted to see more out-doors activities, since it is in the wonderful Derbyshire countryside, the after-effect was excellent.
Madison met some Olympians on her visit, including Adam Peaty and of course the wonderful Tim Shuttleworth and Luke Greenbank and came fully motivated.
When Madison attended the camp in 2017, Madison achieved 6 Regional times in 2018. I want to keep that momentum going and therefore we are going to go to Mel’s summer camp this year to refresh the motivation.
Swimmers must be strongly motivated to get national times and I think it’s the people around you that make you as you influence each other.
