Mastermind behind your performance
Recently I asked myself how learning and sport performance are intertwined. With the olympics out of the way and the paralympics about to start, I want to share some athlete stories and how they relate to learning behaviours.
Anna Kiesenhofer – the so-called amateur cyclist strikes up the gold medal during the Olympic women’s cycling event. Her story generates interest because she is without a commercial team and pulls all the strings herself, from gear choice to race plan.
A near perfect demonstration of someone that takes full control over their own learning process and performance. Anna shows a high degree of self-regulation with little to no interference from the outside world. In other words, she has the supporting capability that allows her to take more control. Mix that with a love for her sport and a will for challenge, and you have a recipe for success.
