Sajan Prakash, an Olympian swimmer, will train in Australia in preparation for the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris.

FINA awarded him a scholarship, and the international swimming organisation would send him to Bond University’s growth facility on the Gold Coast for training. He will work with head coach Chris Mooney, who has a proven track record of producing Olympic medalists.

Sajan’s initial ambition, however, is to qualify for the 2024 Paris Olympics in the 200m butterfly event with an A standard qualification mark. Sajan had became the first Indian swimmer to reach the A Standard mark before of the previous Olympics in Tokyo.

Sajan has had an up and down year, finishing sixth in the 200m butterfly event in the Hangzhou Asian Games. Though he was pleased to be a part of the Asian Games final, he was dissatisfied with his time.

To keep in shape, Sajan competed in the National Games in Goa, winning three gold medals in long-distance events.
