"It takes 0.1 second to judge someone’s appearance. But it takes 26.98 seconds to prove one’s ability and create a new
world record.

There is no competition.

What I strive for is to push the boundaries and be a better me.
To be faster, more powerful.
As I am, and always will be, a swimmer.

Looks shouldn’t be the #1 standard for beauty.
Being the person you want to be,
that is the standard of beauty.

True beauty is the beauty that belongs to you.
