Triple-Impact Competitor® Finalist, Class of 2017
Tampa Preparatory School
Rain Siswanto is a swimmer from Tampa Preparatory School. Ask Rain about the meaning of 'student-athlete' and she'll tell you that it means so much more than being a 'jock' or being a student AND an athlete, the two must coincide. “I believe that making myself a better athlete is being a student -beyond the walls of the classroom and within my training environment. From researching and reading articles that give insight on how to maintain an optimum health, to observing my teammates as they demonstrate various drills for me, I practice being a student of the sport. I do this to fill my insatiable need to discover every possible way I can better myself as the athlete in practice and during a championship meet. Being a great athlete is beyond lifting weights and excelling in physical training; it takes a yearning for mastery of the sport both physically and mentally. Similar to how there are no perfect students, there is no such thing as the perfect athlete, but that will never discourage me from striving to be the best student-athlete I can be.”
Rain's teammates praise her as a 'natural leader' and hard worker. “She does not worry about the barriers she may face. She does what she can to improve her situation. In practice she does everything she can to be a better athlete as a whole. From beating all of the guys in running to keeping perfect form in pull-ups; she puts 110 percent in. From gathering the team for a meeting to leading everyone in a cheer, Rain is a natural leader. Her encouragement is a daily occurrence. The sport of swimming for my teammates and myself would not be the same without Rain. No matter what may happen to her on a given day, her laugh and constant smile changes the energy on the pool deck. She helps you see the good in every situation.”
