I’m honoured to be speaking with Prof Mark Williams in this episode. Mark is one of the world’s leading authorities in sports performance. Mark has worked at various academic institutions including Liverpool John Moores university, University of Sydney, Brunel University London, Florida State, and he is now Professor and Chair of Department at the University of Utah. Mark has just co-authored a book entitled The Best: How Elite Athletes are Made. And it’s this book we mainly focus on.
