Both sides of the medal

The ups and downs of a top-level athlete

Victory is so exciting! But despite the disappointment, there are good lessons to be learned from failure. Drawing on his experience as an Olympic sprinter, Steve will address a number of questions. For example, what type of training should a top-level athlete undergo? What steps do they need to take to reach the next level of competition? How to react to stress and competitors? What sacrifices is he prepared to make to achieve his goals? How can he overcome his disappointment in the face of failure or poor performance?
