Is it possible to swim 10 km at the age of 12?
My name is Zina Yakovleva, I am 12 years old. I have been swimming for 6 years, now I am studying at the school of the Olympic reserve. On November 19, I will go to the start of the night swim, a distance of 10 km! This is my personal #MoreThanYou can! I want to show everyone that even at the age of 12 you can go to serious swims. According to official data, this should be a record among children, which I will do in support of the #MoreThanYouCan Charitable Foundation! Since February 2022, I have met people for whom taking an ordinary step is a big victory, and they go to swims, running and triathlon starts! Each ward of the #MoreThanYouFund is real heroes for me and I want to make an achievement on a par with them! This summer, I participated for 3 days as a support team in the Kimryak ultratriathlon. I decided that I would do my ultra-triathlon when I grew up. And now I have decided to start my own first fundraiser so that all athletes of unlimited possibilities have opportunities to play sports, including swimming and triathlon. Therefore, I take part in the swim and dedicate it to the #MoreThanYouCan Foundation and to each of its athletes! View more >>
