Athlete Interview - Karen Barrow

Beginning in the MSAC adult 'Learn to Swim' classes, Karen Barrow went from scared of the water to triathlon World Champion.

Karen Barrow was scared of the water, but four and a half years ago she was forced reluctantly into the pool as injury rehab, enrolling into MSAC adult ‘Learn to Swim’ classes. In an amazing tale of hard work and determination, and under the instruction of class instructor Shaun Brown throughout the journey, she’s gone from complete non-swimmer, to triathlon World Champion!

We caught up with Karen and Shaun before their regular 'MSAC Lap Club' training, as part of our athlete spotlight interviews! Watch the full inteview (4:45) below.
