“I started working with Mike after the London 2012 Olympics, having had a disappointing games. I had always known that your mental strength in sport was just as important as your physical ability but until I had met Mike, I didn’t know how to train or use my mind efficiently. Through the training and skills I have learned with Mike, I now see myself differently as an athlete and know I can perform the way I want to at any competition. Now over a year on, after completing my most successful season to date, I am still working with Mike!”
Eilidh Doyle, Commonwealth, European, World and Olympic medalist
