Kenny looking ahead with confidence

May 19, 2014 19:03 pm

Jason Kenny admits he's finally discovering his form after a season of frustration.

The three-time Olympic and former world champion would normally be looking ahead to a new season but this summer's Commonwealth Games have extended his campaign.

And he thinks that might be a good thing as he looks towards a third Games appearance in Rio.

“It’s going really well. I’ve had few heavy weeks so it’s just getting the hard work in now that will hopefully pay off towards the end of the season when it matters," he said.

“I got three fifth places at the worlds which was close but not quite enough. We weren’t far off and the main thing is we were still in the game and in the pack – we just need to find that last little tenth to get into the medals and, hopefully, up to the front.

“Rio’s obviously our main goal and qualifying for that starts next year. That makes it increasingly important to get a good off-season and put a lot of base training in now. All that makes the Commonwealth Games a little difficult timing wise.

"Hopefully we’ll be going ok and be competitive. It’s a bit of a tricky one, right in the middle of the summer. Our season is typically in the winter so hopefully we’ll have a bit of off-season form."
