I just found this amazing video of the Canadian Men’s Olympic Rowing Team which was shot at Elk Lake in Victoria, B. C. I thought I would share this of some incredible athletes since the video reinforces the mental training component of athletics which I blogged about yesterday in my post . Also, this is where I learned to row .
“Very few people realize how much work is required to compete at the Olympic caliber. This short film takes a closer look at the philosophy of training to be the best in the world. Several athletes as well as the coach of the Canadian National Rowing Team were interviewed and asked a series of questions about their training program, the philosophy and psychology of training, and the dream of being the world’s fastest.” (Cameron Sylvester)
