Dana Vollmer indstiller karrieren

30. juli 2019, AF Lasse K. Hansen

I et oplæg på Instagram og ESPN har 31-årige Dana Vollmer annonceret at hun indstiller karrieren på fredag, når 100 fly er svømmet under 2019 USA Swimming Nationals.

Igennem karrieren har Vollmer vundet 23 medaljer ved VM og OL - af dem er 11 i guld.

I’ve decided it’s time to retire and chase new goals! I’ve always dreamed I would know in advance when I was swimming my last 100 butterfly. I’d remind myself to take in the experience of my teammates on deck, walking out behind the blocks, hearing the crowd, and to cherish the time in the water! This Friday, at the 2019 USA Swimming Nationals, will be my last 100m butterfly! I get one more race to tap into my fierce competitor and fly through the water! I will be smiling, or happy crying, the entire time! I leave the sport of swimming with a full heart and thousands of unforgettable memories. Thank you to the many many people who have supported me all these years!! There’s a link to my full retirement statement in my Bio!
