Representatives of the University of North Carolina noticed the young and talented swimmer from Tarnovic, and in 2024, after the Olympic Games in Paris, he will move to the United States.
As Ksawery Masiuk says in an interview with Radio DAM, he has received many offers from various American universities and has chosen one where he will be able to combine additional training and develop his career in swimming and science.
– The decision was based on me to be able to develop in both areas, namely swimming and science, because in Poland it is very difficult to combine. I’m happy with that, but I also have slight concerns about what everything will look like. However, I think it’s a very good move, if only because, in case of need, I would have a “lifeline” if swimming didn’t work out.
The young swimmer asserts that his parents were initially against the decision to go abroad, but after analyzing the offer, they changed their minds and even began to encourage him to take such an important step in his life.
Ksouri had already visited the university, which convinced him even more. However, he will not move to the United States until 2024, after graduating from high school and after the Olympics to be held in Paris.
In recent days, Ksawery Masiuk has been very loud all over Poland. At the beginning of May, during the 2022 Polish Open in وودód, he broke two records for Polish seniors – 50 and 100 meters backstroke (24.68 seconds and 53.40 seconds, respectively). Even though it was just a few days before the competition, he still couldn’t believe it.
– Honestly, it has not yet occurred to me that I am the record holder in Poland. I feel like I was before the competition and I hope it stays that way and nothing will bother me. Even though these times are very fast, I still wanted to improve it. Although it is a great achievement, I would be grateful for it even more if someone else did it for me.
In the near future, there are many other beginnings in swimming pools in Poland and in the world before Ksawery. In June it will start, among others, at the Polish Senior Championships in Lublin, the World Senior Championship in Budapest, and the European Junior Championships in Setubal, Portugal.
