Fierce Five and Olympic Records
Our fascination with the Olympics goes beyond the near-perfect performances of the athletes. It also includes their stories. We watch and experience the trials and triumphs of people who fail, who get up and who triumph once again. Possibly through watching how Olympians perform under pressure, we can lean how to perform under pressure, as well.
Two examples stand out in my mind from this week, in women’s gymnastics and men’s swimming.
