190. Nina Sadauskas, 3X Olympic Swimmer, Entrenpreneur, and Mom Talks Passsion, Mental Health, and Drive

Nina Sadauskas is a 3-time Olympic swimmer from Bulgaria, NCAA All-American, and alumna of Southern Methodist University, where she was captain of her team. She is also an entrepreneur and founder of Delfina Athletics, and a proud mom.  Before we dive in, shout out to InsideTracker..

On this episode, I sync up with Nina to talk about her experiences growing up in the Bulgarian competitive sports world, and the details of her journey to the Olympics. We chat about the tough realities of professional athletes, and Nina shares her thoughts on the need for better access to mental health resources among Olympians.

In 2016, Nina pivoted from athletics to entrepreneurship when she founded swimwear company, Delfina Athletics. Working hand in hand with the reputable Delfina Ltd out of her home country, she opened her own distribution in the US, establishing the brand as a premier custom gear supplier to aquatic teams and organizations.  Nina reveals her inspiration behind the brand, Tokyo Lights Collection, as well as her goals moving forward.   Nina is such an inspiring and motivating woman. And she kindly is offering Marni on the Move listeners 10% Off with the code Marni10. I highly recommend adding one of the swimsuits from the Tokyo Lights Collection to your wardrobe! They are super stylish and fit great.
