Mexico City.- Athena Meneses Kovacs is one of the figures that stands out in the swimming activity, corresponding to the CONADE Nationals 2023, which is done in the Jalisco Metropolitan Aquatic Complex. Representative of the State of Mexico, already boasts five gold medals in the category 17-18 years.

The Mexican mermaid has already conquered the 200-meter medley, 50-meter backstroke, and 200-meter freestyle, as well as the 50 and 100-meter butterfly; however, she still has to compete in the 100-meter freestyle, 100-meter, and 200-meter backstroke.

“The tests that I dominate the most are the 100 and 200 backstroke, and the 100 butterfly, are the ones in which I have my best marks,” Meneses Kovacs explained in an interview for the National Commission for Physical Culture and Sport.

Sport has always been present in the life of Athena Meneses, who had her first contacts with the pool at a very young age. Her father, Andrés Meneses, was a national judo champion and her mother Krisztina, originally from Hungary, competed in fencing.

“My start in swimming was not my choice. At two years old, my parents instinctively put me to float, it was given to me, and since I was four years old I have already been competing,” he recalled.

Athena is aware that training is the basis of success and like any high-performance athlete, she recognizes the routines and diets that she must maintain to compete at the highest level.

“Training is very important, I go to the pool between 2 and 3 hours from Monday to Saturday and I go to the gym four days a week, also approximately an hour and a half.

“My diet is not so strict, rather they remove added sugars and some carbohydrates before competing, but it is strict for me because I love sweets,” confessed the Mexican swimmer, who is clear about her aspirations and goals in the pool, but also outside of it.

“My dream is that of all athletes, to compete at the highest level in the world; that is, the Olympic Games, and of course to get on the podium. My goal is to get the most out of my potential, enjoy life to the fullest and not regret anything the day I die,” he concluded.

After the CONADE Nationals, Athena Meneses Kovacs will focus her preparation on a busy schedule: San Salvador 2023 Central American and Caribbean Games, the World Swimming Championships in Fukuoka, and Santiago 2023 Pan American Games.
