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.
