Danish Swimming Federation owned swim site SvÃ¸mmeSporten has an interesting article here where they interview Danish National coach Nick Juba (in English) on Lotte Friis’ decision to move to Baltimore to train with Bob Bowman.
Lotte Friis has left Nice and is going to start swimming in Baltimore in North Baltimore Aquatic Club. What do you think about her decision?
â€œLotte is taking a break from Nice. She may return after Christmas, she may not. It has been left open-ended. Fabrice Pellegrin, the Nice coach had indicated that he was going to focus in different training areas in the upcoming period. Lotte is keen to swim fast in the home-based European Short Course Championships in Herning in December and this influenced the decision. I think that it is a good one. I believe that she is at the stage in her career where she needs to embrace new challenges and where better than in the States.â€
