16 years old and already has an Olympic Gold Medal and several world records. Feeling unaccomplished yet? I know I am.
At the age of 15 she became the youngest Lithuanian to ever win an Olympic Gold Medal and before that she had already broken 11 National Records. Also, I love it when swimmers (or other athletes) get emotional when winning a medal because that’s how you should feel, okay, you just won an olympic medal, be fucking emotional and proud.

In the World Championships in Barcelona she decided that wasn’t enough and she broke the World Record in the 50 & in the 100m Breaststroke.
Also, stop being so cute and nice and have perfect hair because it’s not doing anything good to my self-esteem, thank you.
In short I just really love and admire Ruta, okay? Okay.
