My name is Christopher Ivanov and I’m soon to be a graduate of Fort Hamilton HS. This Fall I will be attending (The College of Staten Island) to pursue my career of becoming a nurse. I began swimming my freshman year of High school only because my older sister did it first, so I thought I might give it a try. It turned out I wasn’t half bad for someone who hasn’t competitively swam most of their life. I joined Matchpoint mid season in Spring last year. I am grateful for the opportunity to improve myself under the Coaching of Dima and Kostya. Swimming has become a big part of my life. I hope to continue improving my swimming in my Division II college team.
