It’s my first individual swim of the meet so it was a bit different preparing for that mentally."
Speaking about the wait he’s had for his individual race, Wallace continued "My role in the team has been different here. I’m trying to become more of a leader, get out and support everyone, while at the same time making sure I’m ready to perform at the level we expect to perform at.”
