20: The truth about being an Olympic Athlete with Katherine Adamek
In this episode I talk to Katherine Adamek. She’s an Olympic Silver and Bronze medalist from the 2010 Olympics.
She talks about what it takes to compete in the Olympics mentally and physically, as well as the proper way to prepare for big performances including mental exercises she used before competing. We go deep into the importance of making an impact on the world and the people around you.
It was a good time talking to Katherine to hear all about her experience and journey through the Olympics and everything she’s learned from it.
