Grant Hackett back in training under top coach but denies Rio comeback


Olympian Grant Hackett is back training under master coach Denis Cotterell on the Gold Coast but is adamant he is not making a fully fledged comeback for the 2016 Rio Olympics despite registering for drug testing.

“Because I’ve been through so much this year, I just wanted to get back into the squad and enjoy a bit of time with the boys and the camaraderie,” Hackett said.

“I just want to get really fit. That is kind of my goal over the next six or seven months — get to a good level of fitness again. Having a bit of time to put into a bit of swimming and gym work is good fun, that is all.
