When watching live streams of national swimming competitions, the best part is often the brilliant and very useful comments the commentators make off and on. Especially if the narrator is an ex Olympian, the knowledge passed on in casual remarks is often quite brilliant.
The best comment I’ve heard during the Swim England Winter Nationals was the commentator remarking that swimmers who had to take time out because of injury would swim bigger and better on their return to the performance competitions.
That is just what I wanted to hear and it gives us a lot of encouragement to believe in the future of Madison’s swimming career.
It is thought that the long rest may strengthen a swimmer’s overall condition when they return to full training after an injury break. We are hoping for a come-back.
