This is a great five minute video that all athletes should watch before the Olympic Trials.
Yes, the video talks specifically about the pressures of the UK 400 meter Olympic Trials, but the take home messages can be for any country, any event, or any sport.
After 4 or 8 long years of training, and all the sacrifices, it’s time to go hard or go home.
There are several tips on how to perform at the trials, everything from mind games to execution. For example…
Sometimes, the race is won or lost before the starter says, “On Your Marks”.
And then there is “round management”.
There are no friends in Track & Field when the starter says, “On Your Marks”.
Good points. Take note.
