From the article:
“‘Olympians don’t just prepare themselves physically, they prepare mentally as well. When it comes to competitions where you get one shot at succeeding, if you aren’t mentally tough your chance of success is significantly smaller,’ said Dr. Aimee Kimball, Mental Training and Peak Performance Consultant. ‘When you add fear of one’s safety to the mix, mental training takes on added importance.’Dr. Kimball works with professional, collegiate, high school, recreational, and youth athletes in a variety of sports. She has assisted the Pittsburgh Steelers in analyzing potential draft picks and has been the Pittsburgh Penguins’ Mental Training consultant for eight years.”
