Olympics 2016 - 100m Semi-Final

    07/08/2016

In some tightly contested semi-finals, which saw Team GB Adam Peaty swim 57.62s, the second fastest time ever recorded for the 100m breaststroke, Ross didn't quite manage to make the cut for the final of the 100m breaststroke, placing 6th in his heat, and 11th overall in the semi-finals in a time of 1:00.05.

"That wasn't good enough. I need to go back and have a look at where I went wrong." - Ross after the 100m breaststroke semi-finals in Rio.

The outcome comes as a disappointment for Ross who's personal best would place right up there in the final, but the result is a testament to the current world standard of breaststroke. Regardless, Ross has remained positive in view of his achievements: pleased to be taking part in his first Olympic Games for team GB and confident that there is plenty more to come in the future.

"Uch oh well. It is what it is, you live and learn!" - Ross pleased to have the experience of the Olympics and keen move on and learn from his performance.

Ross may well have another swim in the 4x100m medley relay, selection dependent, in which Team GB are currently well set for a medal opportunity.

The final of the 100m breaststroke takes place tomorrow morning (Monday 8th August) at 02:53.
