Claudia-Holzner_600Claudia Holzner was six when she saw synchronized swimming on TV from the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games. Two years later she did her first lesson with the Calgary Aquabelles and was hooked. In 2008 she won team gold at the age group Pan American Championships before joining the age 13-15 national team in 2009. She moved up to the junior national team in 2010 and returned to the Pan Am Championships in 2011, winning gold in the solo, duet and team events. After competing at the 2012 FINA World Junior Championships, Holzner joined the senior national team and was named to squad for the 2013 FINA World Championships where she competed in the non-Olympic combo event. Holzner achieved one of the greatest highlights of her career at the 2011 Canadian Open Championships where she won gold in all five events (solo, duet, team, combo, figures).
