As we approach the Summer Olympics in Paris, it’s hard to forget the last Olympics held in Tokyo 2021. The world was in the midst of a global pandemic, and the future was uncertain. But despite the challenges, the Olympics went ahead, and it was a testament to the human spirit that life must go on. It’s hard to believe that our elite athletes are now gearing up for another big year of races, with the journey to Paris just beginning. In this piece, we’ll take a look at how our top athletes are preparing for the upcoming events.
Our elite athletes have been training in preparation for the Summer Olympics. With the pandemic affecting training schedules in the past few years, they’ve shown resilience with the ongoing change. However, with restrictions being lifted for over a year now, there is a sense relief that training and meets have gone ahead unwavered. Despite the challenges, our athletes are determined to be in top shape for the upcoming events.
The mental aspect of competing at the elite level is just as important as physical training. Our athletes have been working with sports psychologists to develop mental toughness and resilience. They’ve also been honing their visualisation skills, imagining themselves performing at their best in front of a global audience.
Nutrition and Recovery
Proper nutrition and recovery are essential for optimal performance. Our athletes have been working with nutritionists and trainers to ensure that they’re fuelling their bodies with the right nutrients and recovering properly after training sessions. Some have even turned to alternative recovery methods, such as cryotherapy and float tanks.
Competitions Leading Up to the Olympics
Leading up to the Summer Olympics, our athletes will be competing in various events to hone their skills and gain valuable experience. Some of these events include World Championships and Olympic Qualifying events. These competitions are important for our athletes to gauge their progress and identify areas where they need to improve.
