RETIREMENT THOUGHTS
She considered retiring from sport after the 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. She had not enjoyed her experience at the Games, so coach Eric Braize told her to take some time out. After four months away she discovered that she missed swimming, and she returned to the pool in January 2017 with a modified training programme. "I put more emphasis on physical work. I'm in the water only once per day, generally in the morning, and I do gym work and cardio in the afternoon." (jactiv.ouest-france.fr, 06 Sep 2017)
