Grit and Obsession: An Elite Athlete's Journey (Guest: Steve Mesler)

Jun 16, 04:55 PM
With the 2021 Tokyo Olympics set to begin next month, David Eades
chats with Olympic gold medalist and World Champion bobsledder
Steve Mesler.   Steve shares his unique insight into the psyche of an
elite athlete striving for the top, reaching the pinnacle and then coming to
terms with the fulfilment of a dream. He also explains how he channeled
that intensity into “Classroom Champions”, an award-winning initiative
that connects star athletes to school children to improve their desire to
learn, to find inspiration and to do well at school.  “It’s not about telling
kids a story.  It’s about having kids be part of a story, part of a
journey”.
