Ok, up for grabs today is guest interview call with John Powell. Here is what Charles has to say about John:
"Considered the finest technician ever in the history of the discus events,
John Powell is respected for both his teaching AND throwing abilities.
A Four-time Olympian, seven-time National Champion, and two-time Olympic
Medalist, no one is more effective in the ring than Powell. A former World
Record Holder (at age 40!) Powell won the Silver Medal at the Rome World
Championships and only a few weeks later set a new personal best with the
longest throw in the world that year - 236’6".
What’s particularly interesting is that Powell was significantly smaller and
weaker than most of his contemporaries, and broke the World record anyway.
I’ve been fortunate enough to do a few workouts with John, and can tell you
this may be the most interesting interview we’ve EVER done. We’ll focus on
the psychology of winning ? habit formation, mindset, goal setting, the
psychology of PR’s and the concept of “last set, best set,” making
everything a competition with yourself, and I’m sure we’ll hear lots of
stories from John’s Olympic career"
5 of you who post here in the next hour and a half are going to win the code. This call takes place from 3:00 to 4:00 PST-yes you have to dial a long distance number, but this call is priceless!!-Julianne
