Olympic record breaking swimmer Joseph Schooling said yesterday (16 Aug) that he was thinking of a professional career in the United States. He said that he would be able to to focus on training at a high level if he was based in that country.
The second year University of Texas (UT) student told AFP, “I’m going to finish my education up in UT, get my diploma, and then we can talk about turning pro, that’s the plan. I imagine it’ll be super hard for me to live in Singapore and train and perform… I just think in the US, I’m more suited, or I’m more used to the US training style now, the environment and everything. I’ve got a good thing going, why change it?”
