Ep.12 Chris Wardlaw: Art of Coaching, Athletics and Training Philosophy

The Champion Within

05-11-2023 • 50 mins

For this episode, we’re thrilled to have Chris Wardlaw, a two-time Olympian, illustrious coach and a towering figure in the Australian sports world.

This isn't just an episode about running faster or jumping higher. Chris takes us on a deep dive into the world of athletics, making us understand the critical role of a coach, not just in shaping the athlete but in the process of becoming redundant over time, a testament to their success in upskilling their trainee. With Chris's anecdotes and wisdom, we unravel the importance of 'feeling' in training, and the concept of goal displacement.

But it's not all sports and no play. Chris reminds us of the need to strike a balance in life, even as an athlete, emphasizing a holistic approach to training, and preparing for life beyond sport. We also dissect the psyche of top athletes, the intricate roles of composure and confidence in their success, and how budding sportspeople can glean valuable lessons from the current crop of runners. So, whether you're an aspiring athlete or a sports enthusiast, you'd certainly enjoy our musings about Monas, Kerryn McCann, Deeks, and many more athletes who've left an indelible mark on Chris. So, lace up and come join us on this exciting journey of sweat, grit, and glory!
