Sprenger and Coutts could pull plug on career after poor results at #AusChamps15


Australian veterans Christian Sprenger and Alicia Coutts may both retire after the Olympic medallists failed to make the Dolphins team last night in their pet events.

Coutts wanted to retire 12 weeks ago due to a persistent shoulder injury that requires surgery while Sprenger has battled back off just six weeks training following shoulder surgery last year to narrowly miss the gold medal at the selection trials.

Coutts has a 100m freestyle event which may yet save her spot on the swim team, but for breaststroke star Sprenger his only hope is a discretionary selection for the world titles team bound for Kazan.
