Fitter and Faster Swim Camps 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.
Slovak sprinter Barbora Mikuskova has verbally committed to Florida Gulf Coast. She told SwimSwam today that she plans on joining the program mid-year, in January.
I am interested in Florida Gulf Coast University because it is a very good opportunity for improving both my knowledge and swimming skills.
TOP TIMES (LCM / SCY conv.)
- 50 free – 26.56 / 23.20
- 100 free – 56.94 / 49.85
- 200 free – 2:06.01 / 1:50.63
Mikuskova has been part of two Slovak national record-setting relays in SCM. Both performances were at the 2018 World SC Championships; she split 55.39 anchoring their 400 medley relay and was 56.28 leading off their 400 free relay. She’s represented Slovakia internationally at Euro Juniors and World Juniors, in addition to SC Worlds.
FGCU was led by Wiktoria Czarnecka in sprint free last season, who won the 50 free CCSA conference title and touched third in the 100 free. Czarnecka has been 22.40/49.36 while at FGCU, and the rising junior will have two years of overlap with Mikuskova, who brings in converted bests similar to Czarnecka’s.
Mikuskova’s converted times would’ve ranked her the #2 FGCU swimmer in the 50/100/200 free last season, so her addition will have a sizable impact.
FGCU just picked up another Slovak NR-holder, IMer Sara Niepelova, who is transferring in from the now-cut East Carolina program.
