Team Belgium works very hard and the right way in Belek (Turkey) during the Olympic yearly training camp in Belek. This year everything is linked with the upcoming 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games. When I write this text moment there are only 235 days, 8 hours and 17 minutes left. A ‘training camp’.
It says what it says. Training on all aspects of topsports. It is a mile-stone in the development process of the athletes’ potential and more. Starting from the prioritized physical development, going up to the brain, where everything is finetuned, athletes discover their challenges working together with ‘dreaming’ colleagues. Participating in Olympic Games is a dream of every athlete and staff member who made top sport his/her passion. Elite sport is in the brain not in your behaviors only. Starting at the feet, the development goes up to the high performance ‘finishing touch’ brain.
Red Devils’ coach Roberto Martinez said in a to the point Sporza interview and on his empathetic tone: “The pressure always comes from inside” and an other awesome statement “You can never inspire an athlete that doesn’t want to be inspired”. Martinez doesn’t negatively responsibilize the athlete. He guides him/her towards a positive mindset, the best way to realizing your dreams. Qualifying will create a great mindset not to regret anything when you notice your results at the Games. “No regrets, I did everything”. The self-determination theory of Ryan and Deci in practice. De last countdown started today here in Belek, Turkey.
