Top Trinidad and Tobago swimmer George Bovell will be looking to fine tune his speed and race strategies when he competes in the Sette Colli competition in Rome, Italy, from tomorrow through Sunday.

Bovell headed to Rome yesterday and is looking to build on his performances from the Belgian Open and the Trofeo Citta di Roma.

?This will be another opportunity to master how I am able to react properly to each unique race situation. Right now the only goal is to be competitive and improve upon my performances this year so far.

?For some perspective I am more focused on what I am doing right and wrong rather than my times, This year I am taking it back to basics to build a bigger foundation on which to excel to new heights next year, the Olympic year,? Bovell told The Express.

The 31-year-old Sportsman of the Year said he was still in his hard training phase but starting to see ?progress and I am beginning to transition into racing mode for the summer.? He will race the Men's 50 metres free tomorrow then the 50m breaststroke on Saturday.

Bovell swam to his first gold medal of the 2015 season when he won the men's 50m freestyle final at the 21st Tropheo Citta di Roma, at the Palace of Swimming Pool, Salaria Sport Village, Rome last week.

The ADN Swim Project Italian club swimmer touched the wall in 22.70 seconds from lane six to finish ahead of 24-year-old Spanish champion Markel Alberdi, who clocked 22.74 from lane three while Russian Lagunov Evgent, the second of three ADN swimmers in the final, got bronze in 22.80 from lane four.

Bovell, who is preparing for next month's Pan American Games in Canada and the FINA World Aquatic Championship in Kazan a month later, got his first silver when he set a national record in the 50m breaststroke in 27.65 to trail Greek swimmer Loannis Karpouzlis (27.61) with Belgium's Jonas Coreelman took third in 28.75.

A day later, he earned silver in the 50m backstroke in 25.70 seconds behind his AND clubmate, Francois Heersbrandt, who won in 25.50 seconds while Greece's Michail Kondizas took bronze in 25.81.

Bovell's next assignments after the Setti Colli are the Trofeo Rossini (June 19-21), the Treviso Swim Cup (June 26-27) and the French Open Championship in Vichy (July 4-5).
