Episode 149,   Jul 03, 2022, 10:00 PM

She calls herself the 'Unlikely' Olympian, but Danielle Kettlewell's story is really one you have to hear to believe. Coming from 16th place to 4th on the Synchronised Swimming team to compete in the pinnacle of any athlete's career - The Olympics.

She calls herself an ‘Unlikely Olympian’, but to us, there’s nothing improbable about the success of this week’s podcast guest, @DanielleKettlewell_. In fact, she’s the kind of woman who exudes nothing but hard work, determination, and grit.

Buckle in for this story people, because it’s one heck of a ride! 

If you haven’t heard of Danielle before, she’s an inspiring young speaker and coach, who teaches others about the power of mindset and manifestation, and who’s written her own book. Oh… and she’s an Olympian, having competed at the freaking 2016 Rio Olympics!!!

Danielle was one of just nine people in the Australian female Synchronised Swimming squad, but it was her journey to even get there that proves just how special she is. From suffering a concussion, to packing up her life and moving across the world by herself,  and spending eight hours training everyday, Danielle says it was never about winning - it was always about realising how good she could be. 

“It was about proving to myself that I was good enough. Letting go of the outcome and being proud of who I became. The outcome doesn’t prove your worth.”

And how did she do it? Well, you’ll have to tune in to find out. But it has a lot to do with transforming her mindset and self-worth.

Because, as Danielle says: “There’s an Unlikely Olympian in all of us.”
