All-Africa Games reignite Warnes’ Olympic dream

Durban – A gold and bronze medal at the recent All-Africa Games in Brazzaville, Congo suggest South African swimmer Rene Warnes’ plans of realizing her life-long dream of competing at the Olympic Games in Rio next year are back on track ahead of the crucial approaching qualification period.

A disappointing 2015 South African National Champs in April threatened to derail the 23 year-old’s Rio 2016 plans however a return to peak condition thanks to her participation in the KZN Department of Sport and Recreation backed Elite Athlete Development Programme saw young talent impress once more at the continental showpiece.

“I started swimming competitively when I was eight and for as long as I can remember all I’ve ever wanted to do was compete at the Olympics and do the best that I can there!” said the Upper Highway resident. “I didn’t have a good nationals and so it was great to get a couple of results at the All-Africa Games and get the confidence back up again, especially after all the hard work I’ve been putting in recently.

“My All-Africa Games times weren’t great but the Tunisians, Egyptians and Algerians really have improved since last year’s All-Africa Games in Mozambique so we definitely still had to work for our results!” she added. Warnes' below par nationals effort lead to her coach Graham Hill take the decision not to send her to the Mare Nostrum – a three meet series around the Mediterranean Sea – and instead revisit her conditioning régime.

“After nationals I needed to get things back on track and my coach (Graham Hill) felt I really needed to work on my conditioning. “I’d been in the gym since I was fifteen but Graham felt I need a change in my programme and so that was when I joined the EADP and started training at Prime.” Warnes’ All-Africa Games performances suggest the two sessions a week she has been putting in with Prime Human Performance Institute strength and conditioning coach Carl Schmidt for the past six months have already started to pay dividends.

“I can already see the difference the training has had!” said Warnes. “KZN Champs are coming up in December and I’m hoping that all the training I’ve been doing will see me on Olympic qualifying time there.” “All the conditioning training Rene has been putting in seems to be working and we’ll see exactly where she is in a few weeks,” added Hill.

For Hill, who has been involved in the Olympic process for some time and as such has developed a keen appreciation of what is required for Olympic success, the next two months are vital ahead of Rio 2016. “This last run of eight months before the Olympics is absolutely crucial, especially the phase from now to January,” said Hill. “Everything we’re doing now is geared towards preparing for Rio,” added Warnes. “Our trials are in April so that will obviously be an important stepping stone and for now its just about putting in the hard work!”
