The Sport Psych Show

Jan 25, 2021

I’m delighted to welcome Dr Chris Shambrook back on the show. This time, Chris is joined by 5 x Olympian, 4 x World Champion and 3 x silver medallist, Frances Houghton MBE.

Frances was the first British woman to be selected for five consecutive Olympic Games in rowing, and only the fifth woman in any sport to achieve this mark for Team GB.

Chris was the team psychologist for the British rowing team from 1997 to 2019 attending 5 Olympic Games and supporting Frances for much of her career. These days Chris takes the lessons learned from Olympic Champions and applies them to help enhance corporate performance.

Frances has written the fascinating new book “Learnings From Five Olympic Games” which is the accumulation of her notes and learnings from her 21 year career. Frances, Chris and I discuss the book in detail and break down the processes Frances utilised to compete at the very highest level.
