She also climbed to the podium with the silver medal in the 100m backstroke (improving her personal best), and the bronze medal in the 200m medley.

Cristhiane told us that this is her second call to the National Swimming Team, the first was for the South American Youth Swimming Team, held in the city of Lima, Peru 2021, where she left Paraguay’s name high; and this new call for the 30th Edition of the Promesas del Conosur tournament, where she was able to give her contribution to the medal table.

How did you prepare for this tournament?
In the best way, our coaches guide us and correct us, we have a work plan and we respect that. We take care of food, hydration and also rest schedules, all of this is important to arrive well at the time of the competition.

In how many races did you make podium?
I had three individual presentations, 1st place in the 100m breaststroke and championship record, 2nd place in the 100m backstroke and 3rd place in the 200m medley. In the two posts that I participated, we got the first place and championship record, but it was a team effort, we achieved it together.

Were you the only swimmer who was called up from your club?
Seven swimmers were called up from Club Olimpia, all very good athletes: Laura Corrales (12), Cecilia Piraino (14), Sara Ramirez (14), Guadalupe Penayo (15); Laurent Barrios (14), Ivan Correa (14) and myself, Cristhiane (13). We are all part of a new generation that we are forming.

Did you participate in any other tournament abroad this year?
As Club Olimpia, I was able to participate in the Sul Brasil Championship in June, which was held at the Santa Mónica Clube de Campo, one of the strongest tournaments in the region, where I won four podiums; It was in the City of Curitiba PR.

In this tournament I managed to achieve a State Record in the 50m Backstroke; but since I was invited, my time did not remain as an official record time record in the Paranaense Federation of Aquatic Sports, but it was announced and appears in the CBDA.

In this last tournament in Brazil I got first place in 100m breaststroke, 50m backstroke and 200m backstroke; second place in 100m backstroke, 200m breaststroke and 200m medley.

What other tournaments do you have left in this 2022 period?
Until now, the only tournament that we already have scheduled is the Third National Stage, organized by the Paraguayan Federation of Aquatic Sports (Fepada), which begins after the second week of December, for the moment my training is focused on that date.

In the first week of December there are also the South American School Games (12, 13 and 14 years old) that will be held in the city of Brasilia – Brazil, if swimming is called by the National Sports Secretary (SND), and I appear on the list Of course I will do my best to leave the name of my school, my Federation and my Country on High.

Anything you want to add?
I want to thank Fepada for making me a part of this wonderful 2022 Promises Delegation, and for trusting me. To the Delegate María Inés Coronel Vargas, the trainers who accompanied us and the parents who took care of us that we do not lack anything. Of course also to my dad and my brother, who were on the other side of the stands cheering on the whole team.

Teamwork made this championship possible after so long, and I’m very happy to have contributed something no matter how small. There are my classmates from Colegio Sagrados Corazones, as this year I have missed a lot of school, they always help me to make up missed classes, and to my teachers and Director, Thank you for always being patient.
