Shelley Taylor-Smith keynote

Seven-time World number one Women’s Marathon Swimmer, Shelley Taylor-Smith is the only woman to hold a number one world ranking for both men and women in the history of any sport.

Now a Motivation & Mental Toughness Performance Coach, Shelley gave the keynote address to the Open Water Swimming Safety Conference in 2014.
