Growing up with three brothers who were actively involved with sports, Victoria was introduced to a wide variety of sports at a very young age.
Out of all the sports she tried it was the water that called her. Victoria became a successful swimmer at a very young age. Growing up around pools and lakes, she learned to swim early on. Following in her Mother’s footsteps she began to swim competitively at the age of nine. Although her sporting career was cut short at the age of eleven. Victoria never thought she’d be an athlete again let alone ever return to the pool. But in August of 2010 after a five year hiatus and facing paralysis, Victoria made her way back into the pool, although it was not by choice. Her two triplet brothers William and Cameron strapped on a life jacket and threw her in the pool. That pivotal event is what eventually led her almost exactly two years later making a huge splash in the water.
Victoria shattered world records and won gold at the London 2012 Paralympic games. Victoria’s swimming résumé includes a gold and three silver medals from The London 2012 Games, as well as multiple world, American and Pan-American records.
