In this episode, I speak with former professional cricketer and now yoga instructor Lewis Hatchett about his journey to becoming an elite sports competitor. Lewis experienced a slightly different development pathway in his sport. He was born with Poland Syndrome, a rare condition that means he’s missing his right pectoral muscle and two ribs. When he was born the doctors said that he wouldn’t be able to play any sport. He defied all odds and eventually became a professional sportsman. After having played professional cricket for 6 years he became a yoga teacher and mentor to a range of sports competitors. This is his story. We talk about dealing with his condition to become a professional sportsman; talent vs hard work; the advertising campaigns that inspired him to model incredible achievers in sport; using visualising success and developing skill despite physical disability.
