Sport Specific Information
Why this sport?
She was often ill as a child and her mother wanted her to become stronger by taking up the sport. "I was never really properly 'introduced' to swimming, but rather my parents put me in swimming classes due to a sickness I had growing up. Eventually, I just started swimming more and more."
