SELSTON swimmer Molly Renshaw has patiently waited three months for her second chance to seal her spot at London 2012.
But, according to former Commonwealth gold medallist Chris Cook, she won’t need to wait much longer.
Renshaw burst onto the swimming scene as the youngest member of last year’s GB team in Shanghai at the World Championships at the tender age of 15.
She then finished second in the 200m final, but missed out on securing her spot on Team GB by less than a second.
Her final opportunity to swim under the FINA A time will comes this week at the ASA National Championships in Sheffield, and Cook is confident that the Selston Arts and Community College will seal her spot at the second time of asking.
“There’s no doubt in my mind Molly will put right what she got wrong in the trials and go under the time she needs,” said Cook.
“She knows this is her last chance, so it’s a case of looking at the trials and what went wrong and then just making a little tweak.
“It can be a little bit annoying for the shorter distance swimmers, the sprinters if you like, as they have to alter their training schedule. But Molly will be fine and I’m confident that come the day she will secure her spot.”
