Morning Swimming Session with Olympic Athlete Stephanie Proud

Coming from a family who loves swimming, Stephanie couldn’t run away from this. 

She started swimming at the early age of 3 although she thinks that she should have started even earlier. 

Olympic Swimmer, beautiful girl full of life and Speedo’s International Brand Ambassador are some of the phrases someone would use to describe her.

She started competing when she was 9 years old. Her first major competition was for the Great Britain junior team when she was 12, this lead to many international meets and 9 medals at the European Junior championships. Stephanie’s senior team accomplishments include 2010 Commonwealth Games finalist and 2011 World Championships semifinalist. Stephanie also competed in the 2009 World University Games in Belgrade where she won the gold medal.

At the age of 18, Stephanie moved to the United States where she trained at the University of Florida for the 2012 London Olympics, at which she proudly achieved 9th place in front of a home crowd.

Somewhere between her preparations for Rio’s Olympic Games for 2016 she made a quick stop to Dubai and gave a swimming session to a number of Editors and Bloggers who love sports. 


Her guidance and patience made us all glad for waking up so early to go meet her! 

The swimming session ended with an amazing and super healthy breakfast at Talise Fitness Center Coffee Shop. Highly recommended!
