UAE veteran swimmer Obaid Al Jesmi says the ‘huge' margin by which he won his races at the National Winter Swimming Championships last weekend shows he is fit and ready to go the Olympics.

Al Jesmi, who represented the UAE at the Athens and Beijing Olympic as well as six World Championships, recently underwent surgery but still managed to set a new national record in the 400IM race on Saturday.

Al Jesmi is facing a battle though to claim the expected one wildcard entry the UAE will get for London 2012.

"Look at how I beat my competitors, we're talking 11 seconds or 15 seconds ahead. That is huge,” Al Jesmi told Sport360. – Sport 360°
