#7 - Anna Hopkin

The Swim Special

Anna Hopkin was kind enough to join Rob for another episode of the Swim Special. A sprinting specialist, Anna has qualified for her first Olympic Games with her sights fully set on the Tokyo games. This will top off a brilliant season that has also seen her pick up 4 gold medals and a bronze at the 2020 European Championships in Budapest. The London Roar swimmer chatted with Rob about her unorthodox journey in swimming to get to the top, which included some teenage years out of the pool and a masters degree in the United States.  Anna offered some brilliant insights into her mental approach to swimming, her plans for the future, and much more. We hope you enjoy.
