A former world-class swimmer announced that she would come out of retirement and try her hand at the Olympic Games once again.
Ariana Kukors thought she was finished swimming after she participated in the 2012 Olympics, but her passion for the sport made her rethink her decision and led her to train for the 2016 Olympics.
Kukors is the current world record holder in the 200-meter individual medley, but she said she plans to do things differently the second time around.
“I’ve put plenty of yards in the pool, my arms know how to pull the water,” Kukors said. “Now, it’s ‘How do I gain explosiveness? How do I gain power?’”
