Glæsner og Ottesen fint på vej mod Herning
Af: Anna Birkbak
Landstræner Nick Juba giver en kommentar om de to svømmeres præstationer ved World Cup.
For lige at runde Jeanette Ottesen Gray og Mads Glæsners deltagelse ved World Cup af kontaktede vi hurtigt Nick Juba for at høre hans mening. De to World Cup stævner i hhv. Dubai og Doha var ikke, hvad Juba kalder for ”main events” inden for World Cup-rækken. Mads og Jeanette havde valgt at deltage, hvilket også var grunden til, at landstræneren selv ikke var med. Der var i højere grad tale om to test-stævner for de to danskere, så de kunne få et fingerpeg frem mod EM i Herning, der ligger under 2 måneder væk.
Og Nick Juba er ganske tilfreds:
”For Mads it was about testing himself ahead of the European Champs. I think he was very pleased with especially his 400m freestyle, which was quite a good race. Unfortunately his 1500 free wasn’t as fast as he had hoped, but he had a good opportunity to see where his current form is.”
Mads vandt bronze i både Dubai og Doha i hhv. 3.42.35 og 3.42.03. På 1500-meteren blev det til hhv. en 10. og en 6. plads for Mads i tiderne 15.06.39 og 14.52.03.
Nick siger om Jeanette:
”Jeanette was again pretty successful, even though she hasn’t got a lot of work under her belt yet. She hasn’t been in the water for long, but she was still able to deliver some good results. She is a great short course swimmer, and she performed very well. With the training the next few months I’m sure she will be in very good shape for Herning, which she is very excited about. So it has been a plus for her to compete!”
Mange tak til Nick for de to kommentarer. Alle resultater for de to World Cups kan findes på www.omegatiming.com.
