Additional information / What would you like people to know about you?

My whole family are swimmers. My aunt (Tanya Bogomilova-Dangalakova) is an Olympic champion and record holder in the Seoul Olympics in 1988 in the 100m breaststroke. My father was a Balkan champion in 1985, 1988, 1990. I am honoured to continue my family's tradition in swimming. Baku will be a big opportunity for me and I am looking forward to the Rio Olympics in 2016.
