Swimming is my second nature. Coming from a swimming loving family i grew up in the water. In addition to talent, i believe it is mainly willpower and the will to organize life for peak performances. That makes the difference. My latest big victories were at the European Championship short course with three times Gold: relay, 50m backstroke and 100m backstroke. At the World Championship short course in Abu Dhabi i went home with four medals: Gold, Silver and 2 times Bronze.
