No, I don’t think so and I was at the GER SC Nationals last week and attended the press conferences: Some big names are not in the actual team for example Steffen Deibler – he focuses on the Olympics next year. And others like Dorothea Brandt or Hendrik Feldwehr won’t compete in Israel. The team swimswam published in the article has been announced after a team meeting on sunday and all athletes have been asked if they want to participate or not. A lot ouf youngsters are in this team now – that is great for them and I’am sure they will show their best perfomances.
