The U.S Swim team, who have won scores of Olympic and World medals, are currently in Croatia preparing for the upcoming 16th FINA World Championships which is being held in Russia…
Led by coach David Marsh, who has coached 47 Olympians from 19 different countries in his coaching career, the U.S team are spending 7 days preparing for the important World Championships in Rijeka at the Kantrida pools, and the Americans have been impressed with what they have seen in Croatia.
“I hope that you are aware of what you have. These are among the best conditions in the world, even if the sea was not in the background! But with the sea behind us, these conditions, I must say, are better than in the US!,” said Marsh.
“This is beautiful. We commented this morning that it is like heaven here. I am sure if the World Championships were not on we would definitely stay here,” Frank Busch, U.S team director told HRT.
The World Championships start in Kazan, Russia next weekend.
