Language:Catalan, English, Spanish
Anna Tarrés is one of the most successful Spanish athletes in history with excellent results in world, European and Olympic championships. But not only that, Anna was also a good swimmer. And an excellent gymnast. So, at age 12, someone suggested that he could try synchronized swimming at the Kallipolis club. Six months after starting in the discipline, Tarrés was already competing in the Spanish Championship.
Talented and innovative, she became the best Spanish in a sport like synchronized swimming, totally unknown in our country. He went to the Olympic Games in Los Angeles 84 and the 1986 World Cup and, in 1988, he retired, but he remained ready to popularize the synchronized in Spain.
In 1994, he joined the Spanish team and, three years later, took the command of the national team. Since then, he has conquered thirteen medals in Europeans and many others in World Championships and has placed Spain among the world powers, one step away from Russia, the great dominator of synchronized swimming in the world.
"Nothing is casual, so I am very clear that, no matter how professional, if Anna is still there, it is because she feels it. Because it comes from within. Because he loves it. That's why he has all my respect for me. "Manuel Estiarte.
