Lynn Sherr


She’s an award-winning writer and journalist, but what you may not know is that she’s one of the world’s most passionate people when it comes to the sport of swimming!

Lynn Sherr is the author of “Swim: Why We Love the Water,” in which she traces the roots of swimming and explores why it’s played such an important role in history. Did you know that Julius Caesar even won a battle thanks to his swimming prowess?

Sherr herself has been swimming since she was a toddler, and tells Growing Bolder it remains a major part of her life, although it’s just one of many things that drives her passion. See what else drives her to stay active!
