Sport Specific Information
When and where did you begin this sport?
She began swimming at age nine in Novokuznetsk, Russian Federation.
Why this sport?
Her parents enrolled her in the sport. "Mum is a swimming coach. Although she was not a swimmer in her original specialisation, she played basketball, but after finishing her studies she went to work in the pool and stayed there. Dad is a master of sport in athletics, his main thing is hurdles. My father took part in Russian championships and international starts. By the way, he is a sprinter - in this regard, I am like him. Genes? I think yes. As a child, I went to a camp with track and field athletes. But this was only an episode, otherwise I was engaged exclusively in swimming."
