Fitter and Faster Swim Clinics is the proud sponsor of SwimSwam’s College Recruiting Channel and all commitment news. For many, swimming in college is a lifelong dream that is pursued with dedication and determination. Fitter and Faster is proud to honor these athletes and those who supported them on their journey.
Florida State University men’s swimming and diving team has added two more verbal commitments to the class of 2023: Slovenia’s Domen Demšar and Maurice Ingenrieth of Germany. They will join Aziz Ghaffari, Cameron Taddonio, Nick Vance, Noah Young, and Peter Varjasi in Tallahassee next September.
“I have committed to Florida State for the class of 2019 because I know it will give me the best opportunity to reach my athletic and academic goals. Ultimately, I made the decision because of the incredible coaching staff and amazing team culture. I can’t wait for my next four years as a Seminole! Go Noles!”
Demsar, originally from Slovenia, swims the 50/100 free and 50/100 fly. He swims for Plavalni klub Olimpija in Ljubljana and represented Slovenia as a national team member in Serbia last year. He earned most of his best times at the 46th International Swimming Championship “Youth 2018” in Zagreb, Croatia, where he won the 50 free and 50 fly and was runner-up in the 100 free and 100 fly.

“I am extremely excited to announce my Verbal Commitment to Florida State University! I still cannot believe that my dream of studying and swimming in the United States of America finally has come true! Coach Neal Studd has done an amazing work at Florida State since he got there and I want to be a part of the coming success. Also the other coaches interacting with each other and the swimmers makes the atmosphere more relaxed and comfortable. For sure they are still focused and ready to dare the “impossible”!!! I can`t wait to be part of the Seminole family! Thanks to everyone who supported me! GO NOLES!!!”
