The Sporting Failures Club
By Michael Roberts and Jack Hicks-Flynn
All too often we only get the rose-tinted version of success. The trophies lifted, medals won, and podiums climbed. Triumph in professional sport does not come easy however. For every light cast on an elite coach or athlete, there is a shadow. And it is this shadow that we want to explore further. The Sporting Failures Club is a podcast that facilitates conversations with elite coaches and athletes in which we discuss the failures and challenges which have helped them get to where they are today. We are Michael Roberts and Jack Hicks-Flynn, a pair of Sport & Exercise Psychologists in training with the aim of unearthing and examining the secrets of growth-related failure.
