It looks like Germany is rebuilding slowly but surely a good team for the future. They have good prospects.
If only we had the same perspective here in France. We have a few good juniors with Lesparre, Dencausse and Wattel but it’s very limitated.
Everything is fine until 2016 but I’m worried for the after Rio when most of our big names will perhaps retire.

I noticed another Poppe breastroker in the Santa Clara results? 15yr old went 1:04 in the D final, this breaks German Jr record. He must be a younger brother?


Johannes Hintze went 1.04.11 last weekend (hes 14 years old), so i dont think its a new record.
