Starting Friday, Switzerland is once again hosting their annual wheelchair track series with Commonwealth Games gold medalist Madison de Rozario in the thick of the action.
De Rozario has entered the T53-54 1,500m and 5,000m this weekend.
Four-time Paralympian Louise Sauvage is the personal coach of de Rozario.
“For Madison, this is the chance to experiment with tactics and try some new things,” she told Athletics Australia.
“Our benchmark this year was the Comm Games and to win both events the way she did gives her plenty of confidence.
"She has come a long way in the past few years and now will be considered a potential threat by her competitors,” Sauvage added.

De Rozrio is joined by Commonwealth Games teammate and silver medalist Eliza Ault-Connell in the renowned competition which is known for having world-class fields and producing world record times.
For Ault-Connell, it will be her first international competition outside of Australia in 12 years after she took a break from the sport to have a family.
“The standard of competition and the conditions here are always fantastic,” Sauvage said.
“Even a bad performance here competing against quality athletes will be positive ahead of next year’s world championships and Tokyo 2020,” she said.
