Kira Toussaint wants to see swimming fun in the US: “I miss social connections”
A wonderful move from Kira Toussaint. The 27-year-old swimmer from Ascentelft will train in the United States to regain his swimming pleasure. “Changing the diet will make the food,” Dossaint says before heading to Knoxville, Tennessee.
Dusainte came out last week with the announcement to change course. “It was almost arranged on a phone call,” says the swimmer, who will be training again with his old coach Matt Credich. Credic also served as his supervisor from 2013 to 2017.
In Sloterparkbad, Toussaint trained with the federation under national coach Mark Faber. It got in the way of the current European champion in the 50, 100 and 200 meter backstroke. “We train in a group of six. I miss a lot of social interactions. I’ll been in the biggest group with friends since I swam in the United States.”
Until the World Cup in Budapest and the European Championships in Rome, Dusainte will stay in the United States anyway. Faber, who coached him in Amsterdam for four and a half years, will help him with those matches. “I think it’s a good choice. We have both come to the conclusion that she will recharge herself in the United States with renewed energy.”
