Shrewsbury's Gemma Almond insists she is getting better with every outing at the London 2012 Paralympics after swimming in her second successive final.
At 19 and making her Games debut in London, Almond isn’t expecting medals, the aim is simply to soak up the experience.
And she is doing just that, after finishing eighth in the 200m medley on Thursday she reached her second medal showdown on Saturday in the 100m butterfly.
She again placed eighth this time in a time of 1:13.24 as Sophie Pascoe of New Zealand again won gold in a new world record of 1:04.43.
Almond still has the 400m and 100m freestyle events to come at the Aquatics Centre and she is confident of reaching her third and fourth finals at the Games.
“The 100m butterfly was nearer my personal best than the medley was and it is the second fastest 100m butterfly time I have ever swam,” said Almond.
“It was my second final and it was even better than the first, the crowd was amazing so it was good.
“My aim for the Games isn’t really medals it is to get to finals and get some experience on the world stage.
“I definitely know how to deal with it a lot better, the nerves are a bit more in control and I enjoyed it.
“It is not easy swimming in lane eight because you are not really in the race.”
