Stephanie Rice, 3 x Olympic Gold Medalist and 5 x World Record Holder unpacks the champion’s mindset
Welcome to episode #72! Today’s guest is a household name. She’s a 3 time Olympic Gold Medalist and 5 time World Record Holder. She’s even been inducted into the International Swimming Hall of Fame. When she was a full-time competitor, her rigorous training involved over 5 hours a day, 6 days a week, swimming 3,000 km a year – so we have front row seats to hearing from an elite athlete about physical fitness and mental toughness.
Now as a retired athlete, she dedicates her time in entrepreneurship, mentorship, speaking engagements and supporting other swimmers through her courses and programs.
Some of the topics we spoke about include:
- Her top 5 vegan ingredient staples
- Her self-talk prior to big races like the 2008 Beijing Olympics
- Tools and systems that kept her accountable for high-level training
- Her tips for breathing, strokes and leg kicks for non-confident swimmers — and we chat about plenty more.
So if you’re interested in having the mindset of a pro athlete and keen to implement that into your career — or your own brand or business, then this is for you, as we uncover what it takes to succeed like an Olympic Champion.
I present to you … the super friendly, humble and determined … Stephanie Rice!
