Richard, I want to thank you for your coaching over the years. I consider the start of us working together to be an inflection point in my career that led to my success. When I look back, I’m so grateful I was guided in your direction – working on my mental performance became the most important piece of the puzzle for me. I had thought before working with you that I was naturally strong mentally and it was something I didn’t need to work on! Now it’s a story I tell people, about how important it is to work on your mental skills and abilities.

All my biggest moments as an athlete came down to the absolute slimmest of margins, and the pressure was massive. This passed Olympic games in Beijing, where we won the 4man bronze medal, I remember the second day being the absolute pinnacle of pressure that I had ever felt in my career. More than our gold medal in South Korea, it took every tool I had, every bit of mental ability to manage to walk out to the start line with a clear and calm mind and let myself perform at my optimal level, and I know for sure that if I hadn’t prepared the way I did with your help over the years it wouldn’t have been possible.

Richard helped me see my mind as a tool, a tool that I could train and sharpen, just like my physical and technical abilities. This allowed me to improve further and perform at my potential in the latter stages of my career, and win a second world championship.
