I’m delighted to speak with throw-in coach, motivational speaker and author, Thomas Gronnemark in this episode. Thomas is the throw-in coach for Liverpool FC as well as for other European clubs.
Thomas has himself had a very varied sporting background having played soccer for over 18 years and moving into athletics in his late teens. He was on the Danish National team for both athletics and bobsleigh and he holds the Guinness World Record for the longest throw-in.
After having not been able to find any information on coaching throw-ins, Thomas decided to create his own course on the subject which then led to him specialise in coaching throw-ins.
We speak about athletes speaking up about nerves and anxiety; evaluating performances; asking for help; experiences not perfection; the importance of having a throw-in strategy and maximising energy.
