Sport Specific Information
Why this sport?
She first became aware of artistic swimming after watching the sport at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney. She initially took part in gymnastics but switched to artistic swimming in 2002. "It is such an artistic sport. I love being able to perform for the audience and feel the support from the crowd. It has given me the freedom to create. Compared to gymnastics, it's nicer to land on your face in the water than on the beam."
