Choking In Sport

Choking is one of those taboo words athletes shun at any cost.

There are a lot of theories and suppositions about the source or cause of choking.

I recently came across this video used by a US squash coach to explain to his team that choking is NOT in your genes – UNLESS you’re a goat.

What I liked about this is that it’s a visual cue you can use to prevent choking whenever you’re feeling stressed or under pressure – just remember… YOU’RE NOT A GOAT!
