We are very excited to announce our guest, Martha McCabe. Two-time Canadian Olympic Swimmer, Canadian swim captain in the Rio 2016 Summer Olympics, and Founder of a new organization called Head to Head. With a huge appreciation for swimmers’ hard work, perseverance, and dedication, we were excited to hear Martha’s story.
In this episode, we get into what sparks that Olympic drive, how support systems are crucial to success in any field, and the difficulty transitioning from a career as a professional athlete into the ‘real world.’ Lastly, we talk about Martha’s new organization Head to Head, designed to pair Olympians with young athletes and sport teams. This provides financial support to retired Olympians as well as a mentoring outlet for young athletes.
