Alexander Aslak giver tilsagn til NC State fra 2020

8. juni 2019, AF Thomas Lund

Den danske rekordholder på 1500 fri og en af de helt store oplevelser ved Danish Open i april måned, Alexander Aslak fra Sigma, har givet tilsagn til North Carolina State om at indgå i deres trup fra efteråret 2020. 

"Aslak" fortsætter således en stærk dansk tradition med succesfulde svømmere på NC State som Andreas Schiellerup, Søren Dahl og ikke mindst Anton Ørskov Ipsen hvis sko bliver noget af en mundfuld at udfylde.

Swimnews erfarer at netop Anton og Alexander vil forberede sig sammen i Danmark det kommende års tid frem mod de olympiske lege i Tokyo. Herefter står den for Alexander på turen til North Carolina mens Anton Ipsen har opnået optagelse på Massachusets institute of technology (MIT).

Alexander Aslak udtaler om skiftet: 

“I am pleased and honored to announce my verbal commitment to NC State University in 2020. It is with one eye crying as I will have to leave my family, friends and my great Club SIGMA with the best team led by our great coach Jonas Lundström and co-coach Flemming Poulsen.  At the same time it is with the other eye smiling and shining of  big expectations and joy. I am so grateful to NC State University for giving me this very special opportunity to train, compete, and study at such a great university. I have received videos etc. from experiences with the Wolfpack, and I am really looking forward to being a proud member of the Wolfpack. I am so thankful to Anton, Bobby, Braden, Mark and all of the NC State team to give me this opportunity, and for having had the patience to guide and advice me, a special thanks to Bobby for all his time spent on skype/phone with me. Thank you, everyone at SIGMA for supporting me, always letting me dream, giving me hope, and unconditional back-up. Currently, I will spend all my time on preparations for the WC, in South Korea and afterwards I will give full focus on the  qualification for the Olympic Games in 2020 . THEN I will look forward to and be proud of this chance given me – be sure – I will do my best.”

 

Foreløbig gælder det dog for de to danske distancesvømmere om at blive helt klar til sommerens VM på langbane hvortil de som bekendt begge er kvalificeret
