Sport Specific Information
When and where did you begin this sport?
She took up the sport at age seven.
Why this sport?
She was practising ballet with her older sister, and after her parents began frequenting a sports club she discovered artistic swimming. "I saw the girls doing a sort of aquatic ballet. It was the perfect combination for me. I told my mother that I would like to do that. They signed me up and I never left."
