Arena’s Ranomi Kromowidjojo from the Netherlands already pocketed two silver medals in the 100m race (51.92) and in the mixed relay (4x50) but the hungry swimmer is not thinking to slow down yet.

Making her come back on the swimming stage after a lower back injury, which probably prevented her to perform her best at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, Kromowidjojo is showing great shape at the 13th FINA World Championships currently taking place in Windsor, Canada.

Taking part in an Arena Meet&Greet this morning at the WFCU Centre, Kromowidjojo said: “I am definitely here for more success after this great start. The next steps for me are the 50m free on Sunday and the women’s 4x50 free. I hope to swim fast and maybe get more medals.”

Speaking about her preparation plans for the next six months, she explained: “I am mainly going to be based in Eindhoven, where I live and train but I am going to attend a training camp in Malaga, Spain, in January. It is a three-week training camp. The in February and March we will stay at home to train. In April we have the trials for the Championships and then finally another training camp. It is a good half year to come.”

I had a minor lower back injury before the Games but I am totally recovered and I feel fine now. I am ready to race again, no problem anymore.
