Swimming still on Alicia Coutts’ mind


Read ninemsn

For someone who has contemplated retirement, Alicia Coutts can’t seem to stop thinking about swimming.

Even when the five-time London Olympic medallist sat down to plan her 2015 wedding the sport seemed to creep into her subconscious.

Coutts, 26, has adopted a year-by-year approach despite being inspired by a post-2012 Olympic chat with former champion Susie O’Neill.

However, Coutts appears to have already made her mind up about powering onto the 2015 world titles in Russia – she just didn’t realise it straight away.

“I have scheduled my wedding around the world championships next year. I must be really contemplating contesting the worlds,” she laughed.

“And Rio (Olympics 2016) are only another few months away from that so maybe I can do that – we will see.”
