At a time when the temperature takes a dip in mountainous Nepal, a teenaged swimmer makes her way to Thailand to maintain her training regime through the winter. Sofia Gadegaard Shah trains in Nepal during the warm season and then in Thanyapura in Phuket in winter. "I do train in Nepal until the time the season allows it, as during the winters it becomes impossible to continue with the training regime because of the absence of heated pools." "Thanyapura, where I am training now, has quite a good one and has triathlon training facilities and an amazing swimming programme." Shah has been a member of the Nepal swimming team on four occasions and her next target is qualification for the Rio 2016 Olympics.Unperturbed that Nepal is yet to make a mark in swimming, the 17-year-old participated in the women's 50m, 100m and 200m freestyle events of the ongoing 12th FINA World Swimming Championships (25m) in Doha, Qatar. "I want to make it to the Olympics in 2016 for Nepal but I know it's going to be a difficult task. Comparatively, we lack some of the best infrastructure and to qualify one need to do it on the basis of rankings," Shah continued.
