Voices of SPS: Alexandra Stamatopoulou

“Focus on what you can do” says 34-year-old Alexandra Stamatopoulou, a Greek swimmer with SPS who won the bronze medal in the Women’s 50m backstroke at the Tokyo Paralympics. Painful and physically taxing, competitive swimming gives her therapeutic and psychological benefits. “I compete, not because I want to make myself suffer, but because as long as I’m succeeding, then I convince myself that I feel better. I can’t say that anything stands in my way.”
