How old are you?

I am Hānim Abrahams, I am currently 17 years old. 

When did you start swimming?

I was introduced to swimming at a very young age, I started swimming lessons when I was about two years old.

I would be in our pool whenever I could and my mom would have to haul me out. In grade R I tried out for the school swim team to be with my older sister.

Many girls thought I was crazy as I tried out with the grade two’s.

I then started swimming at Cape Dolphins Aquatics (CADO) with renowned coach Brian Button at the age of six.

What goes through your mind when you swim? 

When I swim I think what’s goes through my mind is to push myself to limits to compete with myself. I just want to be the best swimmer that I can be.

What inspires you to keep swimming?

What inspires me to swim would be the sport and the competitiveness of swimming.

In swimming you can always be better and faster and that inspires me to keep going.

You won the gold in the 50m breaststroke. Please explain your emotions after you realized you won. 

I was incredibly humble to have won the 50m breastroke at Junior Nationals.

This win meant so much to me as junior nationals was my first nationals post operation, the win made me feel like all the hardwork paid off preparing physically and mentally. 

You were named captain the team captain at the Junior African Swimming Championships. Walk us through that experience please. 

Being a captain of any South African team is incredibly humbling. I enjoy being a leader and it was really a privilege to be the captain.

It taught me a lot about other swimmers and a lot about myself.

What advice for teenagers in your field?

Advice to any teenagers in my field would be “Everything happens for a reason” just trust the process and your own abilities.
