Today we speak with legendary Swim Smooth Coach and former Swedish Olympian from the 1988 Seoul Olympics, Anna-Karin Lundin. The interview takes place in sunny Mallorca, Spain immediately after the BESTFest 2019 of Open Water Swimming, of which she won a few of the Age-Group events outright against some very good competition.

We talk candidly about Anna-Karin's early successes in swimming (primarily as a breaststroke swimmer), her participation at the 1988 Olympics as one of the youngest swimmers at the entire event, her early burn-out and retirement from swimming and then her relatively recent renaissance through her coaching in Gothenburg and venture outdoors into the great open water arena! We also discuss how Anna-Karin joined the Swim Smooth team and discuss more about that at this link:
