Jimmy is joined by Sarah Storey on this weeks podcast. A 38 time world champion, a winner of 14 Paralympic gold medals and a world record breaker on 76 occasions, Sarah has consistently achieved elite sporting performance. We chat about skill acquisition; how and why do some athletes learn faster? More, we discuss the "panic zone" whereby athletes experience stress pre or during performance. Is there an upside to stress or is the "panic zone" to be avoided at all costs? Of course, Sarah is a big red too and we chat Manchester United and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
