Nina Dobrev captured fans’ hearts in the dual role of Elena and Katherine in The Vampire Diaries (not to mention the heart of co-star Ian Somerhalder) and has worked on numerous films and other television gigs. At only 23-years-old, she seems to have a bright future in acting, but has another career attracted the Bulgarian beauty’s attention?
Judging from Nina’s Twitter activity, she has been following the 2012 Summer Olympics closely and has a particular affection for the swimming events. The events have even sparked her to change her normal routine. Nina tweeted, “Watching the Olympics has inspired me.I went swimming today. Swam so long… 30 whole minutes…haha. I think I’m going to try for.” The 140-character limit cut her tweet off, but it looks like she meant to say she will try to compete in the 2016 Olympics.
In reality, it’s doubtful Nina Dobrev is thinking about abandoning her acting career for a life of training in the pool. Athletes who participate in the Olympics usually have far more training than a mere four years. It is nice, however, that the Olympic events have inspired her to exercise more. Perhaps she can even lure Ian Somerhalder away from his animal rescue causes for a few moments to swim a few laps together.
