Business, Olympic Edition Editors Letter – Olympic Edition
By: Stewart Fleming • 4 years ago •
f you have had the good fortune of seeing the movie, Eddie the Eagle, you will have seen first-hand how the Olympics can inspire an individual just by their existence. This is not an isolated incident, with many of the former Olympians sharing similar stories of childhood obsession and commitment. Those readers who remember back to Shane Kelly’s (5 time Olympian) story will remember that he decided at eight years old to become an Olympic gold medal athlete.
So how are the Olympics relevant to you? If you are a regular, sport-loving, nationalistic Australian, but not an elite athlete, then it is a spectacle of Aussie excellence and the chance to support our best athletes. I would not even consider myself a regular athlete but I love watching Australia win. Is that where the Olympics stops for you? A good feeling and some national pride?
Every 4 years, the country’s best motivators, the best technical specialists and the best team builders are selected to bring athletes together to compete with the world’s most elite. It’s a chance to show how we, as humans, can compete and perform in the most exceptional circumstances.
Having put together this amazing resource of coaches, how can we, personally, learn from this group of experts? Not being an athlete, is their information and wisdom relevant to my life, job or business?
If you wanted to be coached to achieve more, this is a great place to start. You may not be aiming to compete at the elite level but if you could learn from those who coach at the pointiest end of success, then I can guarantee it would change your world.
What if we could gather all their stories, wisdom and knowledge and put it together in one place? I have personally interviewed 21 of Australia’s elite coaches and created this store of Olympic excellence. It was not easy – these people are hard to reach and extremely busy, but now we can give you the benefits of their collective wisdom.
This is our first Special Edition and I am incredibly proud of the effort the team have put in and the ultimate result of those efforts. We may not be Olympians, but we have been infected with the Olympic Spirit. We have learned lots and will be viewing our Rio team with more informed Aussie Pride.
Happy Olympic Coaching!
