Other information
MIXED RELAY FAN
After she won a gold medal in the mixed 4x200m freestyle relay at the 2018 European Championships in Glasgow, Scotland, she said she was supportive of the mixed gender relay format. "I hope that mixed relays will continue to establish themselves. Jumping into the water with guys is a lot of fun, even though it feels a little different to start after a man."
