    "Early on, I was all stick and no carrot. Now I'm a carrot farmer" - a conversation with Annie Vernon

    "Early on, I was all stick and no carrot. Now I'm a carrot farmer" - a conversation with Annie Vernon

    Throughout her career as one of the world's top athletes, Annie Vernon struggled with a question about the purpose of sport in our society: why do we do it? What is it about our psyche that makes pushing the mind and body to their limits in order to win a foot race, a swimming race or a rowing race such a basic human desire? Having retired from competition, Annie decided to look for answers to these questions in the world of mind games. What is the psychology behind sport at an elite level?

    Through interviews with leading sports stars and the latest scientific research, 'Mind Games' discusses elite sports psychology in a way that is interesting to the watching public, sports fans and sports-haters alike, with Annie drawing on her own first-hand experiences to walk them through this fascinating subject.

    In this conversation we explore...

    - The value of competitiveness
    - Whether 'talent needs trauma' after all
    - The surprising truth about motivation (it's about chickens or pigs!)
    - Why coaches shouldn't try to be wizards

    Its a great conversation that I am certain you will enjoy
