Women Fitness President, Namita Nayyar, joins the Francesca Dallapé for an interesting chat about her journey to the Olympics and embracing motherhood.
People in general know very little about synchronized swimming. What inspired you pick this sport and pursue it as a career?
I started by chance at six years old, even my parents didn’t know that there was a diving course in my city but I tried and I liked it immediately!
I continued because it is a sport that gave me so much stimulation, because every day I had to face so many fears to make increasingly difficult dives, it is a sport in continuous evolution and transformation.
You took your first swimming lessons when you were in the first grade and since then there has never been a look back. What does your training routine comprise of in a day?
When I went to school, obviously the morning it was dedicated to lessons but, every day I spent all the afternoon in the pool!
After school I’ve been enlisted to the Army Sport Group and I started to do two workouts a day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon.
