Q and A with Paralympic Swimmer Serafina King

By Abby Bergman, Swimming World College Intern

Champion Paralympic swimmer, Serafina King, is getting ready for Paralympic Trials, which will be held June 30 – July 2 in Charlotte, North Carolina. King currently holds the S10 American record in 50 and 100 yard backstroke (32.00/1:05.00) and won bronze medals in the 100m backstroke and 400m freestyle at the 2014 Para Pan Pacific Championship and the 2015 Para Pan American Games, respectively. The 17-year-old trains with Beach Cities Swimming in Redondo Beach, California and answered some questions about the upcoming trials between training sessions.

King: I started getting involved in swimming at the age of 6 or 7 because my parents found out I had scoliosis and the therapist said that the best thing for me would be swimming because it really strengthens your back. So fortunately it did and I just stuck with it after that. It took around five years for me to start enjoying it.
