Kalliopi Zaimi current member of the Panathinaikos Swimming Team, has won the Gold medal at the Hellenic Championship 2019 of her age group (100m freestyle) and she is considered as a promise of swimming.
She started taking swimming classes when she was about three years old, to learn water safety, but it was fun and she loved the water. She joined a club, moved up through the ranks and got better and better before taking part in her first national championship. At the age of 14, her goal is to participate at the European Championships before the age of 16.
She likes to swim but also enjoys eating: “Swimmers are usually pretty chill people who like to mess around except when it comes to food. They do not joke about food”
Go for it!
