"My name is Anaïs, 28 years old. I started swimming with Salim at the age of 12.
It was no joke! You had to be serious, diligent, and on time... It required a certain discipline!
I was not a champion, but Salim taught me rigor... To surpass myself while keeping a good spirit, respecting my training partners.
It was a great time for a teenager like me... I learned to push my abilities, to develop my endurance, my mind. It was important for the rest of my life...
Salim brought me great values beyond performance. And he taught me to never neglect what could be done in the water, even if we were not champions."
