Meet our Athlete of the Week . . . Kaitlin Sandeno!
You have probably seen Kaitlin on our site & social media platforms. However, did you know that Kaitlin competed in the 2000 and 2004 Olympic Games taking home 1 Gold, 1 Silver, and 2 Bronze Medals. She also snagged 4th & 6th place finishes! The former World & American Record Holder is a 6 time World Champ, holds 10 National Titles, & 17 USC School Records.
When it comes to Laguna Fins, Kaitlin's favorite aspect is the comfort. She has the worst memories of wearing other fin brands in the past during her competitive days, because her feet would endure cuts and pain from the traditional rubber fins. She used to dread putting those uncomfortable fins on. Now, swimming in Laguna Fins has become her preferred way of training.
Want to train like an Olympian? We asked Kaitlin for a sample workout that she recommends when training in your Laguna Fins. (see below)
Let us know if you give that workout a whirl!
You know you can customize your Laguna Fins, right? Most swimmers add their Name, Initials, or Swim Team. However, we thought it would be fun to ask Kaitlin what quote or favorite saying she would add to her custom fins for motivation...She told us she would put "NEGU" which stands for "Never Ever Give Up!" And we love it!
Hope you were inspired learning about Kaitlin. Check back next month, for a new spotlight feature on our next "Athlete Of The Week." Who knows...maybe someday YOU will be our featured Athlete!
