About the book
Talented athletes across all sports don’t always go on to fulfil their true potential.
The ratio of those that do, compared to those that don’t is incredibly small.
You mightn’t have found the right sport for you, you might have faced setbacks, barriers, bad luck or lack of facilities. You mightn’t have the knowledge required to optimise your performance, look after your wellbeing or take a long-term approach to your sporting journey.
This book is the answer.
Olympic Champion, Amy Williams MBE guides you through your entire sporting journey, using her own experiences & those of some of Britain’s greatest athletes to help you turn your talent into your triumph.
You’ll learn about mindset, confidence, teamwork, overcoming barriers & setbacks, dealing with injuries, longevity, training & preparation, talent identification schemes, maximising competition/match day outcomes & much more besides.
Featuring original insight from elite performers across many sports & other relevant fields, including Rebecca Adlington (Swimming), Vassos Alexander (Sports Broadcaster), Brian Ashton (rugby), Graham Bell (Skiing), Freddie Burns (Rugby), Maria Costello (Motorcycling), Laura Deas (Skeleton), Heather Fell (Modern Pentathlon), Jason Fox (Broadcaster, former UK Special Forces Soldier), Jason Gardener (Sprints), Helen Glover (Rowing), Sally Gunnell (400m Hurdles), Danny Holdcroft (Head of Performance), Colin Jackson (110m Hurdles), John Jackson (Bobsleigh), Jade Jones (Taekwondo), Katy Livingston (Modern Pentathlon), Lewis Moody (Rugby Union), Eleanor Oldroyd (Sports Broadcaster), Chris Price (Head of Performance, English Institute of Sport), Susie Rodgers (Swimming), Vanessa Ruck (Motorcycling), Ellie Simmonds (Swimming), Heather Stanning (Rowing), Dame Sarah Storey (Cycling, Swimming), Lucy Stone (Breathing Techniques), Tanya Streeter (Freediving), Hannah White (Solo Sailing) & Professor Greg Whyte (Sport Psychologist & Pentathlete).
