Athlete Profile

Meet Jennifer Martin

Jen 3

No Championships this year means we don’t have the chance to catch up as well as meet and get to know our rookies.   So, we are reviving the Athlete Profile of the eNewsletter to give us the opportunity to get to know and share elements of you with the operational team in San Diego and each other.

Our first athlete is Pembroke Pines Police Department Sergeant, Jennifer Martin.  Jennifer grew up in Florida and decided to serve as she followed in her father’s footsteps into Public Safety.  He is now retired, but was a Special Agent with U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement.

Jennifer is a five-year swimming veteran of the World Police & Fire Games and only recently began competing in the United States Police & Fire Championships; winning an astonishing 18 Gold medals. Jennifer started competing at 8 years old when her mother asked if she wanted to join the swim team during the summer to keep busy igniting a love of the sport and for the competition. “I love testing my body and seeing how far I can push myself,” says Jennifer.  Jennifer was also slated to be the Swimming Sport Coordinator at the 2020 US Police and Fire Championships. 

In order to stay competition ready, Jennifer’s training consists of swimming, running and weightlifting; training between 3-4 hours a day. “I’m a big proponent of ‘abs are made in the kitchen’. I stick to a very high protein diet. Low sugar and carbs, with a cheat meal every week.”

Jennifer credits her swim Coach, Chris Anderson, with much of her success. With the ever-changing schedule of a law enforcement officer, he always makes sure she has pool time and has made her a better swimmer today than she was twenty years ago.

“I am looking forward to being a Sport Coordinator for swimming and excited about Rotterdam next year.”
