Grenada (Loop News) – Preparing for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games has been a major balancing act for 16-year-old national swimmer Kimberly Ince.
At the time of this interview with Loop News, Kimberly, a form five student of St Joseph’s Convent, St George, was deep into exam week, with nine CSEC subjects.
The Lambeau teen who started swimming from the age of 6 says it is her first time going to an Olympic Games and admits it has been a challenging balancing act.
“It is pretty nerve-racking simply because of all that been happening with COVID, especially as I have nine CXC subjects this year, I am in form five. So those two pressures have been a bit crazy even thinking about going to the Olympics, knowing that I am actually going.”
She says training started when she was in form four and those two years have been challenging. Kimberly says it has been tough having to study, balance gym, swimming, getting enough sleep and eating properly.
