Episode Notes

What does it take to be an Olympic athlete? Secrets revealed! But, it's not what you think...

Caroline Burckle, I'm still trying to catch my breath.
Swimmer, "Lifer", Leader!

Caroline won two NCAA individual championships in the 200- and 500-yard freestyle event in 2008, and was named the 2008 NCAA Female Swimmer of the Year by winning two NCAA national championships and breaking the oldest-standing women's NCAA swimming record by swimming a 4:33.60 in the 500-yard freestyle! This was just one of her amazing highlights in college.

She soon framed her mindset on the bigger picture within her swimming career - the OLYMPICS!!!

At the 2008 U.S. Olympic Team Trials in Omaha, Nebraska, Caroline placed fourth in the 200-meter freestyle, earning a place on the Olympic swim team for the 4×200-meter freestyle relay. She also placed fourth in the 400-meter freestyle and fifth in the 800-meter freestyle in Omaha per individual racing. WOW!!!

Off to the Beijing 2008 Olympics she would go and at the 2008 Olympic Games, Caroline earned a bronze medal swimming in the 4×200-meter freestyle relay. Caroline swam the lead-off leg in the preliminary heats in 1:57.86 - THAT's FAST!!! - and was selected to swim in the final. She swam the third leg of the final in 1:56.70 - THAT's FASTER!!!

She filled her life with Swimming + Training. Now that she has retired from that competitive sport - swimming athletically + for pleasure these days - she is leading athletes of this generation with mindful practices on how they too can go for any goal they are striving for!

Rise Athlete co-founder and NOW natural skincare creator, Caroline is NOT stopping at anything she pours her heart in to. You will absolutely LOVE this interview and we'd love for you to comment on anything you want to know more about!!!
