World record has no impact on decision about future for Kromowidjojo

Ranomi Kromowidjojo is “very happy” with the record that they Monday swam in the 50 metres freestyle at the short-course. The best, however, has no influence on its decision about the future.

The 26-year-old from Groningen said earlier that after the World Cups this season, make known, or not, a point behind her career move. The world record of 22,93 that they Monday in Berlin improvised plays no role in her decision.

“I focus first on the World Cup in Eindhoven, the netherlands, the last World Cup of this block. Then I go holiday and then we see,” says Kromowidjojo against the NIS.

Since Monday is Kromowidjojo, the first woman in the world under 23 seconds popped up. The previous world record stood since last week with 23,10 in the name of the Swedish Sarah Sjöström.

‘Kromo’ saw a rapid time to arrive, but a large improvement of the world record she had not expected. “It went very well, but I didn’t think I was under 23 seconds, could swim. My own pr had to be there in any case. I knew I was faster, could and that worked out well.”

With her best, recaptured Kromowidjojo her own record that she a week ago lost to Sjöström, who at the World Cup in Moscow 23,10 swam. Kromowidjojo had the record at the short-course since August 2013 in the hands with 23,24. That best matched them in december 2015.

“When Sjöström last week the record swam, I thought: that should just be faster. Everything, the start, the turning point and the finish line. I am very pleased with it.”
