Somebody like me to lead the team, and I think it’s because I want to work with them on or not on being. Okay with her confidence, you know being are authentic. Selves includes a lot of things, but it includes are authentic, emotion, authentic confidence are authentic fear and doubt that’s a big part of it. A lot of people think the presence of fear and doubt mean you’re on the wrong path. Not for you you’re, not the champion. I don’t know erase that I won or thing that I have achieved where I wasn’t completely be convinced I was not capable of doing it or in the middle of it that I wanted to quit. So I want to really get the message out that fear and doubt or part of a Champions path, and we embrace it. We embrace our confidence, we articulate we’re confident enough..

I think all the work will be done before we get to the Olympics. So I think that’s what I really feel a cat games. It’S Mentor mascot. Some people need some constant messenger messaging of really normalizing. The path like the Olympic dream is a funny one. Some athletes dream of going to the Olympics since before they started their Sport, and so I know, athletes who’ve been world champions for on approach Olympics are still like will is this for me, because Olympic Champions are like whoa and the more we can normalize that path And normalize the idea that it’s normal people like us, we’re doing incredible and special things on the Olympics messaging between now it’s by 387 days. More important date should always be the closing ceremony, because the potential is just a thing and it’s we want to know what we’ve actually done. So it’s a countdown to the closing ceremony because that’s when you know you can listen to you talking, you are me, you spent years as a motivator, you have and you can see it, I’m hearing it all come together, as you already start to think about what You going to do for in with the team, as you look at your years, both is competitor also being are involved in various capacities, with the COC to be drawn from Hugo to be channeling in terms of learning from, as you try to do, the job is, As well as you can well I’ll, go to the back of chefs Kurt her net Mark Tewksbury, silly Bernier, like my first check with Ken Reed.

Will I or anyone go in and tell sport how to do their sport beyond the field of play? They are professionals and they are the experts in that, but I’m going to draw from everyone. Anyone is give me anything like it’s always about listening and incorporating that and making the next games the next games, like whatever happens, I like the nine games. I’Ve been to a few hours, even though you’re not counting down to that opening ceremony. What do you think marching as flag bearer in a closing ceremony in 1996 you’ll be leaving the Canadian team?
