Two-time Olympian Hayley Palmer has put missing the world swimming championship behind her and is looking ahead to the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

Palmer missed selection in the 50m freestyle for the world meet beginning in Barcelona in mid-July by just 0.2sec.

Instead, the 24-year-old Aucklander will head an eight-strong New Zealand team for the World University Games in Russia.

She wants to use the event, which runs from July 6 to 17 in Kazan, to give her a gauge on how her preparations for the Glasgow Commonwealth Games are tracking.

“I hope that I can perform at a level which would have otherwise been comparable to the performances we will see from the world championships.”

New Zealand team for the World University Games:

Troy Balvert (St Peter’s, Cambridge), Matthew Glassford (Neptune, Otago), Kate Godfrey (Neptune, Otago), Matthew Hutchins (Wharenui, Canterbury), Emily McGill (Capital, Wellington), Hayley Palmer (North Shore, Auckland), Laura Quilter (North Shore, Auckland), Charlotte Webby (Aquabladz, Taranaki).
