Friday 24 November 2017

“I couldn’t be me anymore”.

After winning gold in the parallel giant slalom at the 2014 Sochi Olympics, Patrizia Kummer decided to take a long break in Hawaii.

On this week’s Best in the World with Richard Parr, the snowboarder reveals the difficulty she had in adjusting to being an Olympic Champion once the games were over.

Richard and Patrizia talk about her work with a mental coach and her studies in sports psychology.

They also chat about Patrizia’s mission statement:

“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” (Neale Donald Walsh).

Plus Patrizia explains why she never gets nervous.
