comeback for Daniel Smith after giving up the sport 4 year ago

Old Coast swimmer Daniel Smith says he hopes to inspire others when overcoming a drug addiction to qualify for the Rio Olympic Games.
Smith was a proficient junior swimmer and won a string of Australian Junior Championships, but in his late teen’s ice pushed his life off the rails and he was before long living on the street.
“It was very difficult, but I guess the pain that I suffered, the pain that I dealt with has truly put me in a position currently to give back to others,” he said.
“That’s what my life’s all concerning now. I am all about giving hope to the following generation and giving hope to others who are dependent on drugs.”

Smith said his five-year drug and drug addiction not solely affected his swimming career, but his family relationships also.
“I destroyed my family and they are still healing now from the complete scenario,” he said.
“You can perceive what it would be like watching your son virtually destroy his life.”
His mother Julie Smith aforesaid it had been a tough period for his or her family.
“We felt for him because we knew it wasn’t him,” she said.
“We simply did not know what to do.
“We saw psychologists and psychiatrists, everything, and no-one could provide us a solution on how to facilitate him.”
‘We’re simply happy that he is alive’
Smith said it absolutely was his love of the pool and his faith that helped him get his life back on target.
Earlier this year he finished fourth within the 200 metres freestyle at the Australian Swimming Championships in Adelaide to secure his spot in the relay team in Rio.
