How to do a mental rehearsal with GB archer Patrick Huston

Published on: 17th February, 2021

Patrick Huston talks us through his mental rehearsals - the way he visualises his performances. It's all part of his preparation in the build up to the qualification events for Tokyo.

It's about visualising success and Patrick spends up to an hour and a half a day doing this. And he gets a notification every 2 hours with a positive reminder to reinforce the message.

It's a glimpse into a sport many of us aren't familiar with. And Patrick is a great salesman for archery.
