Janet Carbin: CBS Survivor & Swimmer Defying Age, Episode #61

Janet Carbin: CBS Survivor & Swimmer Defying Age, Episode #61

*This episode was recorded before the Covid 19 Pandemic changes

Even if you've never watched CBS's Survivor, you'll be motivated and inspired by this interview with (in our opinion) the second-best swimmer ever to appear on Survivor, besides Elizabeth Beisel. At 59 years old, Janet is doing ocean swims four days a week and is breaking gender barriers in the field of lifeguard supervising. Janet is a former Division I swimmer and last season she went stroke for stroke with Beisel in a Survivor swim challenge. You'll hear how Janet used swimming to get to the final 6 of Survivor and how "proving oneself" is the key to success.
