Hard work, dedication and resilience - Sir Chris Hoy

Published on: 19th February, 2021

An Olympic great, Sir Chris Hoy, is on our throwback Friday. It's an excerpt from a much longer interview given to the Track and Ball Podcast.(A brilliant podcast series, by the way, more details further down).

Sir Chris talks about the 2004 games in Athens and how a conversation with the sports psychologist Dr Steve Peters changed his mindset.

Sir Chris is now an author too and his latest book is Be Amazing. He says many athletes doubt themselves. And he shares the techniques and need for hard work that led to his successes.
