After more than a decade on the job, Ukrainian swimmer Yana Klochkova, the 2004 FINA swimmer of the year, felt the need to clock out and take a break. Klochkova, 22, had spent most of her life preparing to become a top-echelon swimmer. Since age 8, her training included five hours of daily workouts, four in the pool and one lifting weights, 11 months a year.
