Cai Lin who has competed in two previous Olympics believes she has a chance of qualifying for the Games and aims to give it her best shot in the next competition available.
“Definitely I hope to make it to my third Olympics..It’s going to be very tough in the 400m freestyle, especially with the Category B time…the next meet will be the National Open Swimming Championships in Shah Alam, end of this month,” Cai Lin told Bernama.
The 27-year-old had qualified under Category B after clocking 4:17.79s en route to winning a silver medal at last year’s Singapore SEA Games but only Category A qualifiers are assured of going to Brazil.
In addition, Cai Lin will be targetting to set a faster time in the 400m and 800m freestyle events in the next three months.
“I hope I can lower my time in the next three months because I have identified areas that I need to improve,” she added.
Besides the Malaysian National Swimming Open Championship, Cai Lin will be participating in a few swimming competitions held in Barcelona (Spain), Monaco and Cannes in France. – BERNAMA
