Happy Olympic Day! Throwback to Singapore in 2011! Not everyone can go, but we all truly put in an Olympic effort to qualify, and that kind of spirit is what builds true Olympians. To those who aspire to go in the future, enjoy the process because that is the story. Competing at the Games is just the fairy tale ending.
"... It's an insecurity that you're not good enough to recover like other athletes: I'm not good enough to do that; I need to keep training; I can't take time off; I can't take easy days." I've been good at monitoring my recovery, but not executing recovery with the detail and precision as my training. I'm finally at that age where it really makes the difference. But I'd rather let someone more important preach. Do you want your athletic career to be a sprint, or a marathon?
People told me math was not important in high school and University. They may not be wrong about math in their lives, but I was wrong to believe them. I wish I took the time to learn Calculus, Probability and Statistics, and even Linear Algebra better. I may be late, but here's to trying one more time... #athletelife#quote#qotd#math#growthmindset#tryagain
Teach me something I don't know. I bet I could learn something new from any person I meet. Although we may compete in different things, life is not a competition, but rather a gigantic learning experience. Perhaps the expression, "There will always be someone better than you" can keep our egos in check. Live, learn, and pass it on.
People like food pictures more than quotes, cuz one makes them feel good, while the other one not-so-good 🤔
Never thought I'd really be here, but I hope I can finish this program that I've started last year at UBC. It's a very new program and it has been an amazing learning experience so far, and there is always so much more to learn.
I only hope I can continue with the program and give back to my sport 🏸. One of my greatest goals is to unite playing ability and sport sciences to become the best coach I can be. I hope I can continue on that path.
Great day for a wedding! @harrokittie is the maid of honour 😊
I wish I was better with Excel or some other type of software. Maybe I will get to learn Tableau! So exciting. Anyway, what if we could rate our 🇨🇦 players this way? I gave myself an approximation. However, the math is not correct 😆 It's not meant to be an absolute, but a hypothesis to get closer and closer to a better answer.
Being good is not enough, being the best all the time is impossible, but we can always be a little bit better than yesterday.
Changing things up a bit on my Gold Medal Profile. I believe that 'Life' can either support or take away from Sport and because of that, I consider it to have a different effect on different people. For example, some might have the support of their National Association, while others waste time fighting them. Finding the right thing to measure will give a better approximation and I have no answers at the moment, only more questions and theories 🤔 (and a lot more work to finish by next week 😫) #athletelife#coachlife#goldmedalprofile#whenlifegivesyoulemons#insertfavouriteexpressionhere
