Nina Joannou – Swimmer

I have been coming to Halliwick Penguins Swimming Club for about 7 years.

I was 63 years old when I first came and I didn’t know how to swim and was very afraid. I am so grateful to the volunteers, who were very patient with me and taught me how to swim.

Because of my disability, the doctors advised me to take up swimming to strengthen my body.

I can now proudly say that I love swimming and I have even taken part in swimming galas.

I am proof that you are never too old to learn how to swim! Many thanks to the Halliwick Penguins Swimming Club.
