The mindset of a World Champion
FLOQ
by Jason Chen
2w ago
Monday April 29th 2024 What makes a World Champion? What separates the good athletes from the great ones? How do World Champions become World Champions and what’s the process that they use to get there? That question isn’t easily answered. After all, if becoming a World Champion was so easy, it would be less special and we wouldn’t hold the accomplishment in such high-esteem. Furthermore, if we could so easily replicate the process to get there, then bottling it and marketing would become a lucrative business. In the end, becoming a World Champion is extremely difficult and as such, training a ..read more

Friday, March 29th 2024 Recently I just had our Team Lunch for my high school team. This has been a tradition since I began teaching and coaching at the high school level and it’s a good way of wrapping up the season and saying goodbye to our Grade 11s, who won’t be back for the next year. In addition, it gives the newcomers another good memory from the season, which will hopefully encourage them to return. The Team Lunch is something I do every year Normally I give a speech at this time, reflecting on how the season went as well as maybe singling out certain individuals who accomplished ..read more

Wednesday March 6th 2024 A couple of weeks ago, two major tournaments were held in Quebec; the GMAA/RSEQ Wrestling Finals and the Provincial Championships. Normally, for both those tournaments, I end up leaving between 5:30 and 6:00 when all the wrestling is done and the Medal presentations have finished. This makes for a long, but manageable day. This year however was different. Having booked our bus for 6:00 pm to leave from the GMAA Championships, we ended up leaving finally at 7:30 after all our athletes were done, bypassing completely the final team standings and medal presentations.
