Good things don’t come easy
Since she decided she will devote herself in a sport that daily “demands” plenty of training hours, Evelina learnt from the very beginning how to stick with schedule and stay disciplined. As a kid she was attending training sessions every single day and she was always finding a new motive in order to evolve and get through difficulties. Her love for artistic swimming prevailed all obstacles and she became not only a top-level contender, but also represented Greece in Rio Olympic Games.
