    E110 - BODY IMAGE IN SWIMMING: Mental Health Awareness with Amber Keegan

    E110 - BODY IMAGE IN SWIMMING: Mental Health Awareness with Amber Keegan

    On this week's episode of the Propulsion Swimming Podcast, we are talking about Mental Health, in line with Mental Health Awareness week here in the UK, and specifically Body Image and Eating Disorders in swimming.   

    For this episode, we are joined by the fantastic Amber Keegan, an elite swimmer at the City of Sheffield, who helps us discuss this important topic by opening up about her own journey through swimming with an eating disorder.   

    We hope by having this discussion we can give the others swimmers the confidence to seek any help they might need. We have both unfortunately lost a former teammate and friend to Mental Health. So it really is a topic we will forever discuss and promote as part of the Propulsion Swimming Podcast.

From a fellow swimmer...

This podcast really helped me keep that interest and mindset of swimming! As practices have been canceled for now due to COVID-19. I have been seeking motivation and I have found it in this podcast!
