General Interest
Sporting philosophy / motto
"Sometimes I did not like going to training, but I forced myself. Who I would become if I threw away swimming is a question I can easily answer. I do not live in a vacuum, and I see what happens when my peers have a lot of free time. I know that, if swimming went out of my life, everything would disappear. The idea of it is awful."
