Ryan Cochrane’s career is coming down to a “lot of lasts”

Ryan Cochrane’s illustrious swimming career, he says, has come down to a “lot of lasts.”

He’ll compete at the Canadian swimming trials this weekend in Victoria to make the team for what will be his last Commonwealth Games.

Next summer will mark his last world championships. The 2016 Rio Games will be his last Olympics.

“The four years between Beijing and London (Olympics) went by like a whirlwind and I think the older you get the faster those years go by, so I’m just trying to make sure I make the most of all these last chances I get,” Cochrane said. “It’s kind of narrowing down … it’s an exciting prospect but you also have to be ready for the final chances you have at representing yourself and putting all this work you worked so hard for to good use.”
