Ekaterina Avramova is a 25 year old Bulgarian born swimmer, double Olympian, Turkish backstroke record holder and Blackwolf Athlete. Ekaterina (or Katy) began swimming at 6 years old to overcome her fear of water. With an ex swimmer and water polo player for a mother, and a handball player for a father, Katy was destined to take up competitive sport.
At the age of 6, Katy would cry at the thought of having a shower, so what better way to conquer her fear than starting to swim competitively?
At the age of 17 she and her mother moved from Bulgaria to London, which gave Katy a better chance to develop further as a competitive athlete, this was an important move for Katy and one which she believe key in her later becoming a double Olympian.
Katy currently holds all Turkish backstroke records and is a 5 x Islamic Solidarity Gold Medalist.
