British swimming star James Guy came away from Rio, his debut Olympics, with two relay medals, but he wants an individual podium position, and that’s what this quad, 2017-2020, is all about. Team GB traveled to the U.S., to the Indy Pro Swim, to fight Team USA talent, and it is all a part of their strategy toward success in 2020.
James’ post Olympic slump, the fall after The Games, was a little depressing. He was unhappy with his performance in Rio. After winning 200 free at 2015 World Championships, James described it as a bit of a disaster, but he loved the experience and the new friendships he made.
Next up for Team GB is World Championship Trials in April, where James is ready to redeem himself. Look for James to drop a fast 200 and 400 free in Budapest. And on that note, what do you think James Guy can go in the final of the 200 free and 400 free at Worlds? I think he’s ready, ripe for a 1:44 low 200m free and a 3:42 400m free. But who cares what I think. It’s all about what you think. Share your predictions in the comments.
