A day with Katarina
The 22-year-old professional swimmer from Serbia lives with her parents in Enns, Austria. Following a swimming accident in 2015 she is dependent on a wheelchair. But giving up was never an issue for Katarina. She has remained true to her passion - swimming. She trains four times a week. Her positive charisma and contagious zest for life are inspiring. When not in the water she enjoys styling herself, and her hobbies also include shopping. We accompanied Katarina for a day and spent many enjoyable hours with her. And always there with her was her MEYRA Nano - a rigid-frame wheelchair that copes with anything, come what may.
My motto: You only live once
