World Champion Ben Proud Speaks out about disqualification in 50m butterfly

ben proud

“Coming into the competition there is always apprehension ahead of the first race. With 10,000 fans in the crowd I wanted to give them something to cheer about by delivering a fast time. Unfortunately before the start signal I was judged to have moved my leg and the referee deemed this enough for a disqualification. I really want to come into the competition to retain both my titles and to have that opportunity take away in the first heat is heartbreaking. This has been four years of dedicated training and consistency - i feel I am in the shape of my life and am gutted to miss out on the opportunity to show what I can do. But the motivation is already there to come back in four years’ time and regain my title in the event I love. This now in the past - all I can do now is support my team mate Jacob. My focus is now fully on the 50m free. I would like to thank the team who helped ease me through this difficult situation.”
