Summary
From Ian Thorpe, Mo Farah and Usain Bolt to Jessica Ennis, Michael Johnson and Michael Phelps, all we see is smooth progression to gold, but in fact their paths are actually punctuated by critical episodes, and it is largely how athletes respond to these events that shape their progression to the top. By scratching under the surface of the life stories of serial champions, common training, environmental influences and, above all, mental characteristics from their formative years and beyond are revealed - tales of individual brilliance are given a fresh twist
