The Olympic Season

The Olympic Season.

Pretty stressful.

Also... pretty exciting, exhilarating, adrenaline pumping... a time in your life that you will remember.

The joy is in the pursuit, not the finish line.

Looking back, I used to avoid the present moment. I would concentrate on what happens post race... trying to control all of the aspects on what "should" happen. But a race is exciting because what should happen isn't always what actually happens... a competition is a competition because anything is possible. 

Races bring out the stress and the stress gives you energy to focus on being exceptional.

When you feel the stress, don't avoid it - use it! Take in the moment and enjoy the unknown.

How to deal with the unknown? Centre back to you. One of the biggest lessons I have learned in sport.. and life, is to focus on myself. 

To sum up... 

1 - Be me. Don't be afraid to do things differently. Being your full self is better than trying to force yourself to do things like someone else. 

The easiest way to win is to focus on how YOU can be your best. 

2 - When that gets hard, be patient. Focus on the internal facts (for me, how to be fast) and keep working. Regardless of the result, there is peace of mind knowing that you are improving and refining your craft. Tough days teach you the most, it's when you win that you really have to dig deep on how you can improve.

3- Support others in their pursuit because when they are on top of their game, they push you to be on top of yours.

That's all for now! Next race is Jan 8th in Scuol, Switzerland. Olympic Qualifications will be finalized after the Simonhohe World Cup Jan 14th.

The Olympics are scheduled Feb 8th in China!
