You started off with football but soon realized that you had potential for athletics. What motivated you to make this switch?
Ana Cláudia Lemos:
I chose Track & Field because my first coach told me that I was talented. I compete for the first time representing my school without any training, although I ran 13.85 s barefoot. Soon I started to train and winning competitions. Then I realized that I could have a career on Track & Field.
What is the best part about having your father as your coach?
Ana Cláudia Lemos:
Well… My father is not a coach. My real coach is Katsuhico Nakaya and he is like a father to me. I guess that the relationship between coach and athlete is pretty similar as father and daughter. It`s a relationship based on trust.
