Hammerheads 1 & 2 Coach
Chigusa came to USA in 2009 from Japan. Swimming has always been a part of her life, both in the pool and at the ocean. She started swimming competitively when she was 11 years old. She swam all through high school and college for VJO, VHS, and DVC. She also played water polo for 3 seasons. Her favorite events were the 200 breaststroke and 100/200 IM. She is currently attending DVC, majoring in graphic design. She likes photography and has been painting since she was a baby, because she came from a family of artists. Chigusa was a lifeguard and swim instructor for GVRD and CMA for 3 years. This is her first coaching opportunity. She loves being in and around water. She goes abalone diving, and spearfishing. The best moment she’s had was hand feeding a baby seal the fish she just caught, because it chased her around! Chigusa also loves animals, and has many pets. She currently has 3 dogs, 7 cats, 2 birds, a guinea pig, and a couple fish.
