Swimming teacher Wouda especially happy for Kromowidjojo themselves that they do not stop
Marcel Wouda is happy that Ranomi Kromowidjojo has chosen to go to the Olympic Games of 2020 in Tokyo.
“It is definitely a very nice message,” was the first reaction of the head coach of the Dutch swimming federation at the press conference in Eindhoven, which Kromowidjo the news themselves promoted.
“It is not unexpected. For the Dutch swimming is very nice. But I’m especially happy for Ranomi itself. She practices her sport yet always with so much passion.”
Kromowidjojo, who this month, 27 years of age, doubted, since the proved disappointing Play of last year in Rio de Janeiro openly about her future. Shortly before the world CHAMPIONSHIPS in Budapest last month she decided to have another three years to go swimming, so she told Thursday.
Groningen won at the 2008 Games in Beijing as a 17-year-old gold in the 4×100 metres freestyle relay. Four years later she won in London individual gold in the 50 and 100 metres free stroke. With the estafetteploeg she grabbed in addition silver.

Wouda looked in Eindhoven, back at the world CHAMPIONSHIPS in Budapest, where his team is somewhat founded after the disastrous stale Games in Rio.
In the Hungarian capital was Kromowidjojo involved in the full Dutch medailleoogst three times silver and one time bronze. Two of those medals she took out the relay inside.
“We have a nice WK rotated” said Wouda. “A lot of new talents who have gone on to have nice times swim.”
The coach hopes that the Dutch talents on the upcoming World Cup short-course in Eindhoven. “At the World Cups they use this year the chances they get. I am convinced that they are going to do to that also in Eindhoven.”
“That is also needed, because they need to get to the top of the world. This is a great stage. There is here in Eindhoven, a great show put down, so they will certainly be inspired to offer great times to swim.”
