Rett Larson, gold medal-winning coach of the Chinese Olympic women’s diving team, visited Brook Road Academy as a guest speaker to share his experiences in Rio. Larson led the diving team’s performance coaches and physical therapists at the 2016 Olympic Games. Over the past 4 Olympic Games, Chinese divers have won 40 out of a possible 48 medals, including 24 of 32 gold medals. He was a huge hit with our students, and we thank him for taking the time to engage with them.
In this video posted on the Leaders Performance Institute website, Larson explores the differences between Eastern and Western performance cultures.
