Sigma Featured Swimmer Of The Week

Updated: May 19, 2021

Sophie Dupre is a 7-year-old swimmer that swims at Sigma Swim’s Cleburne location and swims under Coach Amber.

Q: Why did you decide to become swimmer?

A: I began with summer swim lessons at Splash Station. I loved it so much that I wanted to join Sigma when I learned they had a Cleburne swim team.

Q: Are there any swimmers that inspire and why?

A: I am inspired by other Cleburne Sigma swimmers. Rene Wisenbaker, Julie Hall, Matthew Harman, and Clarice Hunsinker all work hard and are so nice. They're really fast swimmers, and I want to learn how to do that.

Q: Who encourages the most?

A: Coach Amber encourages me. Whenever I get something wrong she tells me I can do it.

Q: What is your favorite and least favorite stroke and why?

A: My favorite stroke is the butterfly because I like the way your arms move. My least favorite stroke is freestyle because we do it every day and it's starting to get old.

Q: How many hours a week do you practice per week?

A: I practice swimming three hours a week.

Q: What do you like to do when you are not swimming?

A: When I'm not swimming I like to play with my three little sisters, practice the guitar, and read.

Q: Have you learned anything else other than swimming from your swim lessons?

A: When I was learning how to streamline, my legs kept bending and I didn't know how to do the undulations, but I kept trying and eventually learned. Swim has taught me how to stick with something hard and not give up.

Q: What do you like most about swimming?

A: I like seeing my friends at swim and Coach Amber.

Q: Do you have any future swimming goals?

A: I would like to start swimming in swim meets now that I've learned the competitive strokes.
