It's natural to be nervous before a competition and in fact it can be beneficial. With practice one ought to be able to harness that nervous energy and use it to good effect. Maybe some visualisation exercises would be helpful, such as mental rehearsal of the perfect race, clean dive, beautiful breakout, easy speed and so on. It is said to be very helpful and some of the top swimmers use visualisation.
