NICE, France, May 20. JUST days after the French Swimming Federation announced that Olympic gold medalist Yannick Agnel would be moving to the States, French paper L'Equipe has broken news that Agnel will be training with Bob Bowman.
Agnel had already stated that he would be missing out on individual events at the World Championships, but would be available for relay duty for France while he focused on making his training location decision. He's now made that decision according to L'Equipe.
L'Equipe goes on to report that the French Swimming Federation supported the decision, and helped to convince Bowman about taking over as Agnel's direct coach. Agnel not only will be training at North Baltimore, he will be working alongside compatriot Camille Muffat's primary U.S. rival in Allison Schmitt.
