Sarah Sjostrom Parts Ways With LongTime Coach Carl Jenner

Sarah Sjostrom Parts Ways With LongTime Coach Carl Jenner

After ten years together Sarah Sjostrom and coach Carl Jenner have announced that they are parting ways. Sjostrom first began training with Jenner when she was just eleven years old, before quickly becoming the European queen of butterfly when she rocketed to gold in the 100 fly at the European LC Championships. Her abilities only continued to climb as she went on to defend her 100 fly title at each following European LC Championships, adding in wins in the 50 fly for good measure.

When the 2012 London Olympics rolled around, however, the outcome was not as Sjostrom and Jenner predicted. The then 18-year-old failed to make it past semi-finals of the 50, 100, and 200 freestyles, while finishing fourth in the 100 fly. Sjostrom explained that, “we did agree after the London Olympics, when it did not go so well. And it was close that we ended already.”

The two rebounded and in 2015 Sjostrom re-gained her world record in the 100 fly at the 2015 World Championships in Kazan, before further lowering it to a 55.48 at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games. It was there that Sjostrom earned her three Olympic medals (one of each color) and became the first female Swedish swimmer to earn an Olympic gold medal.

Sjostrom explained to SVT Sport that the “we want[ed] to finish on top. To get an even longer elite career, it is important to go ahead and get new inspiration.”
