Thorpe says, he has become faster and competitive than ever

The proud of Australia and iconic man of the swimming world is posing him now more competitor than ever. The 28 years old has showed off his winning moves in various events since he is jumping. He is specialized in freestyle races but also has fought many backstroke meets and the individual medley as well. He is one and only, who have taken away five gold medals in Olympics and sealed the record as most win by an Australian. Since he announced his revival, rumours were flying across him that he could not be able to spark again as in past. But he simply disapproved all these myths as he said; I am thinking that I have become faster swimmer than ever before.

Thorpe is currently performing workouts with his recently selected Russian coach, Gennadi Touretski at Switzerland and will be performing small training sessions few and far at Dubai as he previously said. The motive behind his return in swimming is to book his spot on Australia's team for the upcoming London mega event. It will be his first event since he left the swimming in 2006. The giant swimmer announced his comeback into the pool in first week of February, as he was impressed by the London Olympics venue. The Australian swimmer has secured many accolades; he was the most successful swimmer of Olympics 2000. Besides this he continued for many distinctions, he is only swimmer who clichéd six gold medals in one event. Thorpe has been jumping to improve his dives since September 2010 but announced his return earlier week of February.  

Thorpe pronounced himself the most capable as he was used to in past. He has been dominating for several years. He was the called the record breaker and maker; he destroyed the 13 long-course world records when he was ruling between 1999 and 2002. Thorpe expressed his thoughts on his visit to Adidas headquarters in Herzogenaurach, Germany, "My overall goal in what I'm doing now is to be better than what I used to be, that's it." He further added, "When I started swimming again I wasn't going to continue unless I thought I could be (better), And after a few months I'm confident that I can be better and faster than I used to be able to swim.”

Thorpe has named gold medals in 200m and 400m freestyle; he also engraved the victories in 800m races as he won the world title. His major distinctions were outcomes of his prestigious jumps; he has been sparking many times in 100m and 200m individual and relay freestyle events. No doubt, Thorpe is a giant of swimming and he has unlimited talent. He only needs to improve his workouts to be more competitive in the pool. Hopefully he will again top the charts of performances.
