Part 1: Chris Helwick, USA Decathlete & 2021 Olympic Hopeful
Chris is a Decathlete in USA Track & Field and an Olympic Hopeful for 2021. He graduated from the University of Tennessee as a 7-time NCAA All-American, 3-time SCC Champion, and University of Tennessee Record Holder for the Indoor Heptathlon.
Chris is a Pan-American Champion and he actually went to the Olympic Trials in 2008 where he placed 7th and 2012 where he placed 5th - just shy of the top 3 - which is what he needed to move forward in the Olympics. So, in 2012 he retired ... and long story short, which we’ll cover more in depth in these episodes, he’s back again and going for the Olympics, but with a whole new perspective!
What’s so awesome about these episodes, is we get to hear his perspective ... being from himself, the athlete. But we also get to hear from someone he works with, Jeff Meyer, about the brain and about the mental game. It’s absolutely fascinating.
In this episode, you'll hear inspirational stories and a bunch of great insight from Jeff and Chris. In the next episode, you'll hear a load of strategies and tactics that we can start applying in our lives today.
