Sprenger stars at Aquatic Super Series

Christian Sprenger aims to focus his efforts on his much-preferred 100m breaststroke despite impressing in the 200m event at the Aquatic Super Series in Perth.

London Olympic 100m silver medallist Sprenger finished the tri-nation event winning the overall male individual award on 942 points and collected $15,000 for his efforts.

Brisbane-born Sprenger not only won his less favoured 200m breaststroke but achieved a time of two minutes and 11.27 seconds, beating his 2:11.44 seed time.

The 28-year-old is happy to keep the 200m event as a back-up and concentrate his energy on where he will be most likely to clinch a podium finish at big international events.

"Just focusing on the 100m is going to be my best chance in being on top of the world and I think if I take on those two breaststroke events I feel the 100m may fall back," said Sprenger.

"I'm quite happy to continue with the 100m and really push that and have the 200 as a bonus on the side."

The Olympian is confident Swimming Australia coach Leigh Nugent will support his decision to focus on his favoured event.

"I think we would rather one gold medal than two final positions, I think with that idea he (Nugent) will respect my decision," said the Queenslander.

Sprenger won the 100m breaststroke on day one and carried on his strong form in the water on day two to win the 50m breaststroke and set a personal best of 27.37, beating his 2009 AIS meet time of 27.63.

The Super Series is the first of its kind in Australia and Sprenger believes it will continue to grow.

"This sort of thing has never happened in Australia and I think it will be a change in swimming," Sprenger said.

"The crowd was so amazing and they just got right into it and having them behind us and knowing our names now too, we dont get much recognition on home soil and now they get a bit more personal with us which is good for us and good for the sport."

The event closed with an overall dominant performance in the pool from the Australian team who, won the $500,000 event.

The Australians responded to their underwhelming Olympics campaign in London by finished ahead of China and South Africa.
