Markus Rogan will train with VDH
As from mid March, the Austrian swimmer Markus Rogan will come to Eindhoven and train with Pieter van den Hoogenband and his team (NZE) for ten days. He will also enter the Dutch Open Swim Cup in Eindhoven end of March.
Rogan won a silver medal at the Olympics in Athens at the 100m and 200m backstroke event. At the European Championships short course last December in Austria, he won gold medals at the 200m backstroke and 200m IM events.
"It’s always good to have another swimmer join the team for a while", said coach Jacco Verhaeren. "Besides that, Markus is an excellent swimmer." It’s expected that Ian Thorpe will also join VDH’s team for a few days while he’s staying in The Netherlands. Thorpe is guest of honor at the Dutch Open Swim Cup in Eindhoven.
