Swimmer Shayna Jack

Description
Proving her innocence against claims she took performance enhancing drugs has been one of the toughest fights of Shayna Jack's career. But now that she's back in the pool, Shayna is ready to do whatever it takes to reach the top again. Shayna Jack is a Commonwealth Games gold medallist but in 2019, at the peak of her career, Shayna's world came crashing down when a banned substance was found in a routine drug test. Shayna spent the next two and a half years and over $100,000 proving her innocence before she was finally allowed to swim again this year.  Shayna joins host Sam Squiers to discuss winning gold in a star-studded relay team at the 2018 Commonwealth Games, training with legendary coach Dean Boxall, the lengths she went to to prove her innocence and her resolve to reach the peak of her swimming career again in spite of the years she spent out of the pool.
