British swimmer Siobhan-Marie O'Connor has insisted that the team are "focused and determined" to perform at the 2016 Olympics in Rio following the disappointment of London 2012.
This year, the home nations impressed at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games, and O'Connor herself equalled the record for the most number of medals won by a female athlete at the event after nabbing six in Scotland.
When asked by Sports Mole if Great Britain can challenge in Rio, O'Connor said: "Hopefully yeah, that's definitely the aim for everyone. America dominate and China are a very strong nation as well, but we don't have the sort of gene pool as them - they've got a massive country, but we've got some incredibly talented swimmers here.
"The strength of British swimming looks very good for that and I just hope that we can carry it on. There's definitely been changes that have helped and everyone's very focused and determined to make that the case in two years' time."
The 18-year-old will round off her year by competing in the FINA World Swimming Championships in Doha next month.
