Olympic Gold medalist in Tokyo and English swimming star, Anna Hopkin, shares her journey in sports. Anna started competing nationally at a very early age, but today she explains how stepping away from the sport for four years in her teenage years helped her find balance and learn to love swimming again. This decision helped her prioritise her mental and physical health and have a long career in the pool when it mattered most, ultimately leading her to win an Olympic gold medal in the Mixed 4x 100m Medley Relay. Now, Anna swims for Arkansas University where she recently placed second at the NCAA’s 100 yard freestyle. In today’s episode, Anna also shares her Olympic experience, and dives into how she maintained her motivation throughout Covid when she could not swim. “If you don't enjoy what you're doing, then you're never going to achieve what you want to, whether it's in a sport or in a job or in a relationship” - Anna Hopkin.
