Kirsten Bruhn knows exactly what she wants and what not. But until she can make her dream of an own swimwear and jewellery collection come true, she swims as fast as she can – also at the Paralympics in London. REHACARE.de talked to the self-confident athlete about strange odours, applesauce and her parents.

REHACARE.de: If you were to win one million in the lottery, what would you do with the money?
Kirsten Bruhn: I would amortise the house of my parents and go on holiday with my family. I would also go on holiday only with my boyfriend in the Maldives.
