While the vast majority of Olympic hopefuls are continuing on for Tokyo in 2021, Rio Olympic swimming medalist Pieter Timmers decided that he will not.

Timmers, the 2016 Olympic 100m freestyle silver medalist, will retire at the end of 2020, according to a Belgian swimming federation press release.

Timmers said he could have competed for another year, but he already had unspecified plans set for August 2020 and beyond.
