Where Can I Find Online Videos of Athletes Visualizing Success?

| 1 Comment

A colleague told me that the Olympics television coverage yesterday of Lindsey Vonn’s Gold Medal ski run showed her and other skiers visualizing the course before their runs.

As regular readers know, I’ve been using visualization with my students.

I’d love to find some online clips of the skiers prior to their races, of other athletes doing the same thing, or even video showing them talking about them doing it. I think my students would benefit from watching them — it would provide some good reinforcement. I haven’t been successful, though, in finding them. For example, there are plenty of clips of Vonn in action, but none of her warming-up.

Does anybody have suggestions?

  1. I’d love to get that too! Visualization is great. At my school we’re having our advisory students create dream books or dream videos.
