A little about me...
My name is Mariya Koroleva and I'm a member of the U.S. Olympic Duet for the sport of synchronized swimming. I've been swimming for 17 years (yikes!) and I've been on the national team for 9. I graduated from Stanford University in 2013 and am almost finished getting my masters degree in sport management from the University of San Francisco. I love chocolate, cross stitching, scented candles and sunsets. Follow me on my journey to my second Olympics in Rio de Janeiro!

Olympic blog is back!!
Hi everyone! My Olympic blog is officially back just in time for Rio 2016. For those of you who are reading this for the first time, I kept a blog during my last Olympics in London in 2012 to share my experience with my friends, family and fans. Feel free to scroll down and check it out! It's crazy to think that I wrote those posts four years ago and here I am now, about to compete in my second Olympics. While I never expected or even dreamed about becoming a two-time Olympian, I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to represent this country once again at the highest level of sport and to compete alongside the best athletes in the world. I hope you guys enjoy following along as my duet partner Anita and I go into our last two weeks of preparation for Rio. If there is anything you would like me to talk about or have any questions for me, feel free to leave a comment or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Can't wait to get this started!
