Kathryn Johnstone Swimming

Always be honest with yourself in the effort you give to an activity. Be confident and fearless when standing up to perform.

About me

I started swimming competitively aged 7, when I followed my older sister along to our local swimming club (Carnegie). I loved swimming and got progressively better through training.

Over 20 years of being a competitive swimmer, I have been given some amazing opportunities. I have traveled the world through both training camps and competitions and learned important skills which I have transferred into my everyday life. Whilst being an athlete, I have always been in education. I have maintained a high level of athletic performance whilst also maintaining my academic studies (high school through to masters degree).
