About

Carolyn Johnson

Redtorch Comeback Queen. Not allowed to take part in family games at Christmas because ‘I take them too seriously…’

My most memorable sporting moment is…

When the Queen skydived into the London 2012 Opening Ceremony with 007.

I’m happiest when…

Skiing fast down a red on a bluebird day, preferably towards a log cabin that sells mulled wine.

The sports person that best represents me is…

Eddie the Eagle Edwards. I love to try new sports (tag rugby, softball, beach volleyball) but don’t necessarily have the ability to match. Probably won’t make it to an Olympics Games though.

The three things at the top of my bucket list are…

1. Complete the Three Peaks Challenge with my sister

2. Renovate a camper van and explore the UK’s hidden gems

3. Visit Japan (happy to accompany anyone to Tokyo 2020 if there’s a spare ticket going…)

A quote I try to live my life by is…

“When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.” – Lao Tzu
