    Author's note: when I listened to this episode after the fact, I realized I had said "Shannon Hooper" when, of course, the great Canadian trail blazer in soccer was Charmaine Hooper. In acknowledging my error, I want to point out that it was a slip of the tongue and not a lack of familiarity of the names mentioned by Abby Wambach in her very kind and heartfelt acknowledgement of the success of the Canadian women's team at the Tokyo Olympics, and to those who went before.

    Dr. Din completed her dissertation by interviewing a number of Olympic champion athletes and coaches and searching for the commonalities. This served as a jumping off point for our discussion. We covered a variety of topics including self-awareness and growth vs. fixed mindset, as well as the instances when coaches need to push back against the "mythology" of a given sport.
