Why this sport?
He began swimming due to respiratory issues due to bronchitis. "To be fair I did not like it that much and I went swimming almost as an obligation. But my family did not let me quit. I ended up liking it at around age 12 or 13 when I began competing to qualify and win a regional championship and then another. And I discovered that passion for competition."
