BIO: LINNEA MACK
I started swimming on Osprey Aquatics when I was 8 years old. I have competed at 2 Olympic Trials, various international meets & was a member of the USA National Junior Team. I am now training with Team Elite San Diego & I am part of the ISL LA Current team. In addition to pool time, my training includes weightlifting, yoga, surfing and Orangetheory. I grew up eating organic wholesome food. I also served in FoodCorps, empowering kids with the ability to grow their own food & make healthy choices. I believe in the power of food & all it can do to heal the body. Hence why I joined the P2 family!
