After amassing 33 gold medals across major international and domestic meets in 2023, Chinese swimming sensation Qin Haiyang is preparing to make an even bigger splash at this summer's Paris Olympics.

"I hope I can be like a thunderbolt in the pool at the Paris Games. I hope I can produce the best result possible, and make a real splash. I will keep pushing myself to produce better and better performances," Qin told China Daily online show Tracking Success.

"Preparing as best I can for Paris involves extremely detailed and comprehensive planning in terms of training, warm-up competitions and my daily schedule. So I have to be ready for this both mentally and physically. Right now, every day is pretty busy for me."

Qin's 2023 gold rush began with three titles at a national championship in March. Months later, he wowed the world with a hat-trick of breaststroke golds (50m, 100m and 200m) at the World Aquatics Championships in Fukuoka, lowering the 200m world record to 2:05.48 in the process.
