Alicia Coutts has ‘pushed herself to absolute limit’ in preparation for final Olympics


“Definitely I know that I’ve been doing everything I can, pushing myself to the absolute limit,” Coutts said.

“I almost passed out twice at training. I did some filming with Sunrise and they were filming my main set and at one stage I thought, ‘I’m going to vomit, I’m going to vomit all over myself and this is not going to look good on TV.’

“Sitting on the side of the pool after my main set I didn’t even have the energy if I wanted to do it in the water. I was just going to vomit all over my swim suit.

“I know that I’ve given it everything so I can’t be disappointed with that.”
