WHAT IS THE BOOK ALL ABOUT? THE BACK COVER BLURB WILL START TO GIVE YOU A FLAVOUR - IT'S ALL ABOUT ESSENTIAL PRACTITIONER SKILLS...
"If you are contemplating working with a champion, a potential champion, or anyone with untapped talent - be prepared, be very prepared. In 1998 Sir Steve Redgrave stared at Ingham and demanded to know, “Are you going to make me go faster?” Ingham had been trained and developed as a scientist, but in that single instance he questioned everything he thought he knew.
Applied science in elite sport has boomed, it has radically changed elite sport, but one thing remains as the guiding focus - the summit of performing to your best and winning.
In this book Ingham draws on the lessons learned from a career in the intense, unforgiving rollercoaster of elite sport; helping, supporting and developing some of the best athletes in the world, including Sir Steve Redgrave, Sir Matthew Pinsent, Hayley Tullett, Kelly Sotherton, and Jessica Ennis-Hill as they pursue their goals. His journey shows that all the knowledge in the world will get you only so far, but it is with trust, team-work, critical thinking, adaptability, accountability and altruism that you can truly support a champion."
OVER THE COMING WEEKS UP, ESPECIALLY UP TO THE OLYMPICS AND PARALYMPICS IN THE SUMMER, I WILL BE PROVIDING SUPPLEMENTARY CONTENT ABOUT THE BOOK AND IT'S MAIN THEMES. STAY TUNED...
