PREPARATION’S been really good. We had a week’s training camp in Germany with countries like Germany, Brazil, Spain, France. There were a few countries there, seven or eight so that was really good prep.
We’re maybe training a bit harder than we did for the Europeans but it’s the same training camp, going through the same things, again more than ready to go to these Worlds.
In Germany it was the same as in the gym in Sheffield. Running in the morning, strength and conditioning in the afternoon, then sparring with other countries. We had it harder than the others. While we were running and doing weights, they were saving themselves for the sparring… I asked the coaches why, and they said that’s why we win more medals than them.
