Commentary:

Participating in competitive swimming taught me self-discipline, that it is always possible to improve oneself by setting goals and hard work. And then, as a parent, I looked to swimming to pass on these values to our five children — all of whom were PIL swimmers — and to support them in all their endeavors as my parents had encouraged me.
