Chest pain with ASD

Hi, my 11 years old daughter is a competitive swimmer, she was born with a ASD of 6 mm, in time it closed down to 2 mm. In the last few months she was complaining of chest pain during training, after seeing her cardiologist we found out that the shunt increased in size to 8 mm. She is still swimming and she was complaining again of chest pain that lasted after she stopped training. X ray and EKG were done and it come out fine. Should she stop swimming competitive?
Thanks.
A.

Have her take a hiatus and if the pain goes away then by all means permanently stop competing. If the pain still comes and goes during her break then its time she goes back to her MD.
