Giordan Harris is looking to build on previous Olympic experience.
Giordan Harris has once again been chosen to represent Team MHL at the Olympic games in Rio de Janeiro.
Harris, like his swim colleague Furgeson, who will be competing in the 50m freestyle is extremely excited about representing his nation for a second time at an Olympic Games. He has been out in the United States of America preparng for his event, and has explained “Being so close to the Games we are bringing the training volume down, but still intensity high, focusing on the details now”.
This specific training regime has further ensured through expert coaching that the fine-tuning onGiordan’s technique has come just in time for the Games to give him every possible chance of performing to his maximum potential during his event. Further to this, Giordan has come back from the Oceania Swimming Championships where he has been able to pinpoint areas of his technique to work in at his pre-Olympic training camp.
Overall, Harris came back from the Championships having had a successful campaign where he achieved three new lifetime bests and narrowly missed out on two other lifetime bests. Harris found the event as the ideal warm-up to his competition swimming adding that “it was a good event, good practice for racing”.
Harris, who was part of the Marshallese contingent that travelled to London in 2012, is looking to build on these past experiences that he has attended. He will be looking to use the knowledge that he has gathered from coaches and previous Olympic races to try and improve on his experiences from his time in the United Kingdom.
Harris swims in the Men’s 50m freestyle on 11th August in the Olympic Park at the Olympic Aquatics Stadium.
