Kiana, age 10, started synchro at age 8 with York Synchro Club’s recreational program with her sister Zenya. Then she came to OSSC and swam one year in the 10 & Under pre-provincial level and now is on the 11-12 provincial team. She loves that synchro is fun and like “dancing in the water.” Outside of synchro, she really enjoys drawing.
Coach Anne-Sophie says, “Kiana is a ray of sunshine. Always smiling, positive, supportive of her teammates and dedicated to her training. Since September, she has improved tremendously on a variety of skills and with all her efforts, her transition to the provincial level has been seamless. She is very strong in routine with excellent knowledge of counts and patterns, her level of fitness has reached new heights, and her figures scores are continually increasing. She far exceeded my expectations at the Regionals in March with a solid performance in the figure meet. Kiana has a very soft demeanor, wonderful people’s skills and a superb work ethic. It’s an absolute pleasure to be her coach this year. I know her teammates are just as fond of her as I am.”
