Kiwi Running Show – 017 – Talent Needs Trauma

The research tells us that talent doesn’t respond well to a cushy, cotton-wool upbringing. Instead hardship and trauma and the experience of working through them are characteristics of almost all successful sports people. So this week, Hamish and Hayden talk about ways to do something scary everyday in your training  in order to develop resilience.

We also catch up with Olympian Hamish Carson to hear about his Rio Olympics experience and what’s in store for the future … including a fair amount of smack talk around this weekend’s New Zealand Road Relay Champs!
