Simmonds 'can get back to her best'

Ellie Simmonds says she will be able to get back into top form after struggling to qualify for the World Championships.

She put the disappointment of missing out on the chance to defend her world 100m title behind her to secure her place in the 400m freestyle.

The four-time Paralympic gold medallist says 2013 has "been a learning curve" in the wake of London 2012, with two more events - the 100m breaststroke and backstroke - now added into her training schedule.

The 2013 IPC Swimming World Championships take place in Montreal, Canada from 11-17 August.
