Fanny Lukes swam in her last race. She announced it on Instagram. The Belgian man’s #1 stop among women. She closes in with her beauty as she reached the final at the Olympic Games and at the World Cup this year.
This summer, Lecluyse had a major milestone in her career. She reached the final in the 200m breaststroke at the Tokyo Games. She also reached the final in the 50m breaststroke at the World Short Course this month.
That World Cup in Abu Dhabi turned out to be her last match. “I’m definitely hanging my swimsuit on the hook,” she wrote on Instagram tonight. “My career will end in 2021.”
She thanked everyone who helped her during her long career. It concluded with a prophetic message. “You’re not going to see me doing the rounds anytime soon, but maybe I’ll show up next to the aquarium. To go on.”
Thus, Lecluyse concludes a successful career. In 2015, she became the European champion in the 200-meter breaststroke in the small pool. She has also competed in 3 Olympic Games and has a whole bunch of Belgian records to her name.
“This Olympic final was my goal, now I’m ready for something else”
“I’ve been thinking about it for a while,” Liquez told Sporza in the first reaction. “I’m 29 and I’m starting to feel like my recovery is going less and less smoothly. In fact, I don’t have the energy for it anymore.”
“I really did everything I could this year, for those games. I couldn’t do more. I achieved my goal there too in that last place. Now I’m ready for something new. I don’t have any regrets about it. It’s my decision.”
So this last venue was the highlight of Lukes’ career. “Yeah, especially in the big pool. I also got the bronze medal in the world championship short course and also became the European champion in the small pool. I am really satisfied. I think I would be proud.
She won’t swim for a while now. But what will the future bring? “I don’t want to be in the water anymore. I will work as a teacher and I will also become a coach in a swimming club.”
