From the time she first stepped onto the starting blocks, Karlyn Pipes seemed destined for Olympic medals, Wheaties boxes, and greatness. Brimming with talent and coached by two-time Olympic gold medalist Mike Troy, she had the potential to be the best. But unable to keep up with the expectations, she turned her back on the sport and replaced the liquid of the pool with that of the bottle. Today, Karlyn wants to show you that it is never too late to turn your life around. In this episode, Karlyn will be discussing using sports to do just that. She hopes to inspire others to move towards self-revelation, getting unstuck and learning to let go.

Karlyn Pipes is an internationally known inspirational speaker and the author of The Do-Over, an inspiring story about recovery, hope, and second chances. Candid, compelling, and insightful, this is a beneath-the-surface look at a remarkable, odds-defying comeback—not just in the pool, but in life. Karlyn also owns and operates Aquatic Edge (www.aquaticedge.org) with the goal of teaching swimmers and triathletes how to swim faster with less effort by offering swim technique workshops worldwide, and private swim instruction and camps in Kona, Hawaii. Today, Karlyn is one of the most accomplished competitive swimmers in the world.
