Hi Mobin,

My suggestion is to work on the back-end of your 100m freestyle event.  This means that you need to work a bit more on your fitness and practice hard repeats when you are fatigued.

For example you might do a set in practice of 8 x 100m freestyle on 2 minutes going 50m solid and then 50m hard.  Train your body to be able to perform in the second half of each race.

If you work through this with your coach, and practice strong and hard swimming in the second half of each repeat you do, over a period of a couple of months you will gradually eliminate the severe muscle weakness that you experienced.
