Sigma Featured Swimmer Of The Week

Dominique is a 11-year old swimmer that swims at Sigma Swim’s Fort Worth North (TCCNW) location under Coach Jill.



Q: How and when did you decide to become a swimmer?

A: My mom had taken me to swim lessons since I was a toddler. So, when we moved here from Russia and I had the opportunity to continue swimming and later be part of the team, I decided I would join in!


Q: What does the sport of swimming mean to you and what would you say if you were told that you can’t swim anymore?

A: Swimming means quite a bit to me, even if I complain about going to practice sometimes. When I practice, it is kind of like a time to myself, especially when we are doing long sets. And if someone told me I couldn’t swim anymore, I’d be astounded/shocked and would probably pass it off as a prank.


Q: Who is your biggest supporter?

A: Definitely, it is my mom.


Q: Are there any swimmers that inspire the most you and why?

A: There’s this one girl who is actually on the Sigma team at TCC NW and her name is Kady (if I spelled it correctly). She manages to be faster than everyone even after she hurt her leg. I want to be like her!


Q: Did you ever swim an event at meet that you did not like and how did you handle it?

A: I’ve never swam at a meet I didn’t like, but I have a sneaking suspicion that Coach Jill is going to make me swim butterfly, and I’m not looking forward to that.


Q: How has swimming impacted your social life and how do you deal with it?

A: Swimming does kind of crowd my schedule, and it’s kind of hard to plan things with friends, but I think I deal with it well.


Q: What is your favorite and least event at a swim meet?

A: Favorite: 50/100 Freestyle

Least favorite (at least, I think): 100/200 Butterfly


Q: Are there any lessons you have learned, other than swimming, since you became a swimmer?

A: Never eat something before swimming. Bananas are literally your best friends and cramps are TERRIBLE.



Q: What do you like to do outside of swimming?

A: I play the piano and I’m starting to learn to play the bassoon. I also like drawing.


Q: What are you dreams or goals for the future in swimming?

A: I want to keep swimming until high school at least, but I’m not sure I want to make a career out of it.
