“Having a positive mental health is crucial as a high-performance athlete. Being involved in competitive sport always comes with emotional challenges, and it is important we are aware of how to deal with these moments so that we don't get snowed under. The clearer our minds are, the less negativity there is to translate into our competitive nature when it matters.”
