Episode 16 - Stephanie Dixon, 19-time Paralympic swimming champion and world record holder!
Wow! What an interview we have lined up for you today! Paul and Adam chat with Stephanie Dixon, 19-time Paralympic swimming champion and world record holder from Canada, who recently attended our 3-day Swim Smooth Coach Education Course in Portland, OR, USA at the Nike World HQ.
Stephanie talks candidly about being born missing her right leg and how her body has adapted to deliver a perfectly balanced, streamlined and symmetrical swimming stroke which in Steph's words, allows her to "swim like a mermaid".
This wonderfully open, warm and charismatic athlete will teach us all more than a few things about living a life of balance, acceptance and making the absolute most with what you've got. Stephanie's motto is to recognise that we are all "enough" with whatever we've been born with, to whomever our parents and environment might be, it's what you make of that that really counts!
The first 2 minute intro is well worth re-listening to at any time you're feeling a little low and need a little lift and perspective in your life! We hope you really enjoy this cracking interview!
