Brisbane: American swimming superstar Michael Phelps said on Saturday it would take time to return to his best ahead of next week’s Pan Pacific Championships in Australia.
Phelps, the 18 Olympic gold medallist, returned to competition in April after a retirement that lasted nearly two years and finished this month’s US Championships without a title. Phelps (29) will contest the 200 metres individual medley and the 100 metres butterfly.
“Losing by a hundredth (of a second) and by five one-hundredth at the (US) nationals was frustrating. But I’m taking it a lot slower now because I need to give my body time to get back and build up,” he said.
