Mitch Larkin has admitted that the last few weeks have been "challenging" in the wake of his breakup with also Olympic swimmer actress Emily Seebohm.

The star of the men's group is working hard to prepare for their 200-meter event at the Pan Pacific Swimming Championships this week in Tokyo.

He said: "It was a challenge, but we had a fantastic camp in Cairns.

"It's been a fantastic environment to train and compete together, I feel really good," he said according to the Sydney Morning Herald.

Larkin and Olympic gold medalist Seebohm made headlines in the preparation of the competition when The Daily Telegraph reported that Larkin was suspected of having an 'affair with another swimmer outside the Australian swim team'.

Seebohm was allowed to leave training camp in Cairns late last month, but said the decision was not due to his separation from Larkin.

In an Instagram post published on July 16, Seebohm said it was "best for her to stay in Brisbane … because my Platinum horse needed extensive medical care."

Larkin and Emily Seebohm have seen their respective preparations tarnished by their division's coverage, first reported on July 20.

She admitted however that the circumstances in preparation for the competition "had not been my best preparation".

Seebohm seems to have sought to create his own identity after the breakup of the relationship.

On July 20, he posted an Instagram photo of her performing an acrobatic handstand, along with the legend & # 39; this is the only bender I go these days & # 39;.

One commentator added, after reading the Telegraph's coverage of the division, that "Mitch is a silly child for getting away from that feeling."

Larkin has already swum on the first day of the competition and has qualified sixth for the final.

Meanwhile, the 2016 gold medalist Seebohm won his heat in a time of 58.79s by setting a championship record in the 100m of the backstroke series in Tokyo.
