SWIM BC ADVANCE: OLYMPIAN PANEL
On January 9th, 2022, Swim BC swimmers and their coaches participated in an Olympian panel, hosted by Head to Head.
The first hour was moderated by two-time Olympian and CBC Sportscaster, Brittany MacLean and featured Olympians Rebecca Smith, Yuri Kisil, Brent Hayden, and Maggie Mac Neil. The Olympians shared their experience at the Tokyo Olympics, told stories, and imparted their wisdom.
In the second hour swimmers went into breakout groups of 5 to 6 swimmers per Olympian mentor to discuss one of the following topics:
- Resilience: Coping with or bouncing back from difficulty or failure
- Mental performance: Managing nerves and building focus
- Healthy habits: Building accountability for recovery
- Managing pressure and competing demands: Time Management
Thank-you to each participant and to the Olympian mentors for their time and support of our BC swimmers.
