Alys THOMAS (GBR)

On reaching the semifinal:

"It felt smooth, it felt good. I just kept an eye on what the girls were going but I can’t control what they do so just focusing on me and try to back it up tonight and get through to tomorrow (the final).

"I just take one race at a time really so just do the heats this morning and hopefully make it back and then concentrate on that. Even thought some people might think I’m a dead cert being seeded second in there is no certainty. I am always guaranteed a heat and then just go from there."
