On this featured performer episode we feature 2018 Commonwealth Games race walk 20km champion Aussie, Jemima Montag who shares her highs, lows and learnings by consolidating her experiences to date as an elite athlete into takeaway learnings for us as listeners.
During this conversation, Jemima shares around the important role of an athlete's psychology in executing come race day, why keeping training fun and casual is so key as a junior. Jemima candidly shares the hard lessons that she learned around why fuelling must match the work being performed and how for Jemima doubling the training workload as a junior transitioning into the senior ranks whilst having the caloric intake created a performance void.
Of course there's the highest lows and many learnings and Jemima issues a fantastic physical challenge for the week. You'll hear Jemima reference fellow featured experts and featured performers of the physical performance shows archives which is a great example of how the learnings from the show are impacting athletes of all levels, recreational through to professional as we all strive for the one common goal to perform at our physical best.
