Undine was a runner from a very early age, but it became her profession when she started attending Stanford University, San Francisco. As Undine was one of Galina’s greatest role models, Galina enjoyed playing all sorts of sports from early childhood alongside her older sister. In addition, she was always described as an extroverted and energetic child, so sports was the perfect field for her, and she became extremely passionate about it.
