Olympic & Paralympic Athletes Visit New CSIO Facility And Share Insights With Staff

Thursday, August 21, 2014

Earlier this week, CSIO welcomed Olympic and Paralympic athletes Priscilla Lopes-Schliep (Hurdles), Dr. Rachelle Viinberg (Rowing), Karen Cockburn (Trampoline), and Tyler Miller (Wheelchair Basketball) to our new home for a tour of the state-of-the-art facility and a luncheon with staff.

During lunch, the athletes participated in a panel discussion where they shared their insights into what drives them to succeed, the impact of having a support system and team in place, and the challenges they face as athletes. Each of the athletes also talked about the importance of CSIO’s dedicated high performance sport institute in their training and the impact that the resulting high performance culture will have on their training and determination as they strive for podium performances.

It was a very informative and empowering discussion, that left staff invigorated by the insights shared.

Thank you to all of the athletes who were able to join us!
