It was July 1992, just before her third birthday, when she received her first swimsuit on holiday. There she stood at the edge of the swimming pool. Splash! And then it was blub, blub, blub and mum had to dive in and rescue her from the bottom of the pool. The little rascal thought that because she was wearing a swimsuit she could immediately swim. Mum and grandma got the fright of their lives. But when Ranomi resurfaced she said: ‘Again!’. And that’s how the whole story more or less started.
