The German Swimming Association wants to make a decision on the vacant post of service sport director in the next week and continues to think about the three-time Olympic champion Michael. "We have a plan on the board and will vote this plan with the Bureau in the coming week.

Among other national coach Bernd Berkhahn and athlete spokeswoman Sarah Köhler had most recently been pronounced for a rehabilitation of course swatches. If this is not possible promptly, they suggest great as an interim solution for the post.
"I had two contact with Michael twice. We asked his ideas and he knows our idea. But he is not the only candidate, "said Troll over the former top athletes.
The DSV President declared: "It's about that the important organizational tasks are fulfilled in the direction of Olympic Games. And it's about giving the tasks of a director of power sports back into solid hands. Whether one makes the interim or permanent, we will see.
