Title? Medals? Sport only has meaning if it is fun. This also applies to world champions. Angelina Köhler, who won Germany’s first World Cup gold in the pool since 2009, is a good example.

Because Taylor Swift is everywhere these days, her voice was also in the ears of Angelina Köhler from Dernbach im Westerwald on Monday evening, shortly before the final of the 100 meter butterfly at the World Swimming Championships in Doha, Qatar. Show time!

For Angelina Köhler, as for many swimmers, this means: music to your ears (Swift’s “Cruel Summer”), introspection, and breathing deeply. Starting block. Immerse yourself. Turn around. Attacks. After 56.28 seconds, Angelina Köhler was at the finish: world champion.

A remarkable achievement

As the first German pool swimmer since Britta Steffen 15 years ago. Back in 2009, Angelina Köhler was eight years old, today she is 23. Two generations of German swimmers traveled to and from seven world championships without winning a single race in the pool. Difficult times for the German Swimming Association.
