“I am hugely excited about my performance as it is another step towards fulfilling my dream to represent Sweden at the Tokyo Olympic Games in 2020," said Adam.
Paulsson was also happy to have been awarded a wild-card to compete in the 14th FINA World Swimming Championships (25 m) to be held December 11–16, 2018 in Hangzhou, China, after narrowly failing to gain an Olympic qualifying time.
Wild-card slots are allocated by national Olympic committees based on unique qualification requirements for a high-ranking sportsperson who is unable to qualify in a normal way.
“I cannot wait to get in that pool in Hangzhou. I'm hungry for top times and results and I will give it all I have in the 400 meter free and 400 meter medley races to make sure I qualify for the Tokyo Olympics,” Adam told Bluewater.
