Simone Biles and Michael Phelps are among the Olympians who have ADHD. But what is that disorder, and how does it affect elite athletes?
It's Mental Health Awareness Month, so we welcome Dr. Kristin Keim back to the show to talk to us about how athletes -- and non-athletes -- can think about how to care for our mental well-being during the COVID-19 pandemic.
After the tragic death of Olympian Kelly Catlin, we wanted to talk to someone about sports psychology and try to understand some of the mental challenges elite athletes face. Sport and Performance Psychologist Dr. Kristin Keim of Keim Performance Consulting joins us to explain the field of sports psychology, how athletes use it for improving performance, and how they use it when it's time to retire.
Contributor Ben Jackson is back with another part of last fall's interview with 3x Olympic Aerialist Emily Cook. Emily talks about overcoming adversity and returning from injury--and she had a doozy of an injury. Emily also talks about how to stay motivated and how to be OK if things don't go according to plan.
