If there’s one person I personally look at as a role model for a driven mumpreneur is Rebecca Adlington and I am honoured to have interviewed her for the London Mums magazine Summer issue. Read the full heartwarming interview in our latest print magazine.

Recently she was involved in the London 2016 LEN European Aquatics Championships as a coach and presenter and now she is heading to Rio to be a commentator during the Olympic Games.

In between these big jobs she has managed to inspire children leading a campaign from Disney, Change4Life and the Amateur Swimming Association (ASA) that sees the launch of themed family swim sessions at hundreds of pools across the UK as well as new 10 Minute Shake Up activities inspired by the new Disney·Pixar blockbuster, Finding Dory. Rebecca was joined by her colleague and British sporting champion Tom Daley. Together they encourage children to just keep movinglike Dory in the super funny film. The charitable initiative  which runs from 22nd July until 4th September aims to make exercise fun and help children get the 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity they need each day.
