SW: PROUD (GBR) #2 - gold in men's 50m freestyle

GLASGOW - Further comments from Ben Proud after winning gold in the men's 50m freestyle at Tollcross International Swimming Centre on Thursday.

Ben PROUD (GBR) - gold

On his progress since returning to England after growing up in Malaysia:

"A lot has changed but I'm still the same boy inside, still got the same dreams and I'm going closer and closer to it.

"I'm grateful to everyone I've worked with so far. Now I've two more years [until the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games] to put some good work in."

On the support from his family, particularly his mother:

"She carries most of the nerves and she also feels the happiest when I do well. I'll go and see her after this and go and celebrate."
