Thanks. Obviously now is the toughest time to not be there, watching friends, rivals and teammates competing, but need to look big picture.

Keep your head up, and stick with it.
My best mate was a national swimmer, as was his sister, but he never made the final jump into international comp...

Sounds like you are awesome...

Surely if you only missed out by such a slim margin, you'd still go as a reserve?

Or did you miss the reserve place, by that slim margin????

No reserves taken, criteria is pretty black and white but that is the way it has to be. Could have been worse, another swimmer missed the time by 0.01s.

The way I see it, I can be an Olympian come Rio with an education and career outside the pool or simply a dual Olympian with nowhere to go upon retirement from sport which is the case for most of my competitors.
