In addition to her coaching and teaching experience, Weronika herself learnt how to swim at the age of 5 back to her motherland, Poland. Her first swimming teacher was her father and her first stroke breaststroke, which she nailed to perfection at such a young age. She soon fell in love with swimming and started competing at school carnivals and train in a local swim club. Swimming then took a back seat in the pursuit of other sports like basketball, snowboarding and windsurfing and after all university but till today she hasn’t gave them up and has been active since. Weronika finished degree in Physical Education at Jozef Pilsudski Academy of Physical Education in Warsaw, Poland where she became a qualified swimming, water polo and snowboarding coach as well as PE teacher in 2008. Year after that she arrived to Sydney which she can now call home.
