Of the five sports of pentathlon (fencing, swimming, equestrian, shooting and running), which do you consider your best?

What career would you like to pursue or are you currently pursuing?
I haven’t figured that one out yet!
Future goals (in sport & or work)?
Keep going for personal bests in each of the pentathlon sports.
What is the greatest challenge you have faced?
Time management with school, training, chores, friends/social life – not necessarily in that order.
In the moments when I doubt that I want to continue, how do I motivate myself?
My parents are a big help in keeping me motivated. Also the feeling of unfulfillment if I don’t give something my all.
How has being an athlete benefited you (positive effects in your life that you would not have had otherwise)?
I have learned so much about taking care of my physical and mental states as both contribute greatly to sport performance and I’ve made some great friends in the club.
