Lewis: We've been here for about two and a half months now, and the training we've done is just unbelievable, it's doubled in a matter of weeks. I feel my training's definitely improved, but this weekend we've got a competition coming up so we'd like to see how we do there.
Michael: I've increased my training, but we haven't competed much. But I've done one of my personal best times since coming here.
Lewis: Sometimes it's very tiring. The commitment we're making is very hard. Sometimes when you get up you think: "Oh I've got the gym, then swimming, then school, then swimming again." But there are up-sides. In England I was training til 10 o'clock at night and was expected to get up at 4.50am the next morning. So in that way the time we get to train is a lot better. We work a lot better because we're more rested.
Michael: We live so close to the pool, there's less travelling, which means we get so much more rest. It's not so much of a chore coming here. There's a very positive vibe.
Lewis: The whole of the school is very sporty. Their first 15 rugby team is treated like gods, their rowing team, their swimming team. They love their sports here.
