In the world of elite sport, the difference between winning and losing or achieving a personal best is very small. This presentation pulls together many of the critical factors that must be developed and meshed together to make success possible. A person’s genetic endowment is the initial piece that must then be crafted and augmented through hard work, integrated support, and quality competition.
