Today was important for me and another improvement and step forward on my return to the sport. We are very pleased with my 3rd placing in the B Final. Also pleasing was my time relative to the winner who arguably was a serious medal contender who like many other class athletes here didnt cope optimally with the conditions in the semi finals. Obviously comparing A Final and B Final times is pointless as there was over and hour between them and an obvious shift in the wind. However a very impressive Final to watch. Congratulations to Max, Tim and Aleh.
Overall the best 1000m I have been able to put together in a long time and there are no mysteries as to where to from here. I feel confident with the new opportunities I can get back to my best and from there build on that. Im very excited about the next two years.
